Qualifying for Alternate Formats

Meet with a DSPS Counselor

Before requesting alternate formats, a CCSF student must meet with a DSPS counselor. The counselor will determine whether the student meets the legal requirements for print-related accommodations.

If you qualify for print accommodations, the counselor will refer you to the Alternate Media Specialist. The counselor will either schedule you for an appointment with the Alternate Media Specialist or the Specialist will call you to schedule the appointment.

In addition the counselor will refer you to the Ocean or John Adams High Tech Centers for training on adaptive technology.

To schedule an appointment with a DSPS counselor, please call 415-452-5481 (voice) or 415-452-5451 (TDD). You can also email dspsacom@ccsf.edu.

If you are not able to come to campus, telephone appointments are available.

Once you have been approved by a DSPS counselor for alternate formats, you can request them.
