Requesting Alternative Formats in MYBMAC

Introduction

Alternative Media is the conversion of textbooks and course materials into an accessible format for students with qualifying disabilities. If you are a BMAC student who has been approved for alternative formats by a BMAC specialist, you may request your approved format/formats by following the steps outlined on this page.

The AIM Center will be replacing contracts and agreement forms with digital E-Forms in MyBMAC. You must agree to these electronic forms before you can complete any of the following steps. Your MyBMAC profile will automatically notify you and prompt you to agree.

Once you have been approved for alternative formats, requesting your textbooks in your desired format follows similar steps requesting your other accommodations. In order to request your formats you will have to complete the following steps.

  • Select alternative formats on the lower left-hand side of the screen.
  • Choose which course you are selecting formats for.
