Student Disability Services (SDS) assists registered students with coordination of accessible course materials. This includes textbooks and supplemental content such as videos, articles, and images. Services should be requested using the following procedure:
SDS staff provides pre-term consultation for students who have a disability for which assistive technologies or the provision of curricular materials in alternate formats is necessary. During consultation, SDS staff consults with students and faculty to determine what alternate formats a student will require for the student’s curricular materials, what assistive technologies the student uses or needs, and what formats will work with the student’s assistive technologies.
Please note: To ensure that pre-term consultations are held for all of your courses, you must notify SDS by emailing SDS@MiamiOH.edu if you register for a course after the close of advance registration, or if your course schedule changes at any time after priority registration.
SDS will conduct all of the pre-term consultations described above no later than two weeks before the beginning of each course.
Students can request consultation at any time by contacting SDS at the following locations:
Oxford: SDS@MiamiOH.edu, 513-529-1541
Middletown: MUMDC@MiamiOH.edu, 513-727-3431
Hamilton: MUHODS@MiamiOH.edu, 513-785-3211
The AccessMU Center provides a variety of assistive technology that can be used to access course materials—including, but not limited to, Read&Write, Roger Pens, JAWS, and Zoomtext. SDS assists students with identifying what assistive technology that will be used, including processes for obtaining and learning to use the software or hardware.
Course schedule changes should be reported to SDS staff as soon as they occur. Students are responsible for notifying SDS of schedule changes so any required SDS consultations relating to newly scheduled courses can occur. This will also assist with the timely production of accessible course materials. Consultations will occur within two weeks of SDS’s receipt of notice of the schedule change.
