Alternate Text Format
- Make sure you read, sign, and understand the section on NMSU Copyright Acknowlegement on the Student Agreement form.
- Fill out the SAS Alternate Request Form. SAS must receive the course textbooks and other reading materials at least 4 weeks before they are due in order to ensure ample time for preparation and timely return of the materials to the student.
- Inform the Assistive Technology Specialist which alternate format you want.
- Sometimes, it may be necessary to remove the spine from bound reading materials so that they can be scanned. Once the spine is removed, the textbook cannot be sold back to the NMSU bookstore or other textbook vendor. SAS will rebind your book with a spiral binding.
