Using the Student Center

Your membership means that students will be able to access their textbooks in a format that best meets their needs, including E-Text, Audiobook, or Braille. Orders for textbooks must be placed by the disability service provider (DSP) at the school. Contact the DSP for additional information. Braille orders will be shipped to the DSP, while E-Text and Audiobook orders will be available for download.

Membership gives students access to the Student Center where they can:

  1. Check the status of book orders
  2. Download completed electronic book files
  3. Download software that will read books out loud
  4. Place a request for alternative format textbooks
