Alternate Media is an accommodation for eligible Ventura College students who have a print disability due to vision, learning, or mobility limitations. It is an accommodation that is evaluated and approved by an Educational Assistance Center (EAC) counselor.
The Alternate Media Specialist works with publishers, third-party agencies, and other accessibility professionals in order to provide qualifying students with equitable access to their instructional materials. This is done by preparing accessible media formats of required reading and training students to use specialized software to effectively consume their alternate media resources.
Schedule an appointment with your EAC counselor to determine your eligibility.
