SASC Services and Resources
Alternate Format Text Materials
SASC should be supplied in advance of the semester with the necessary information (book name, author & edition ISBN number) in order to access Alternative format books for students.
When given sufficient time will work with textbook publishers to secure permission to access E-texts. Students are advised to use priority registration in order to select classes early enough so that the student may contact their course departments regarding book lists in advance. In order to secure alternate format students should send their requests to SASC prior to the start of the semester.
SASC has a limited supply of equipment that may be borrowed on a short-term loan basis, such as tape recorders, an FM amplification system, and Telephone Typewriters (TTY.) Elevator keys are available on a temporary basis for students requiring them. A deposit is required.
Volunteer and/or paid note-takers are utilized to assist students unable to take notes.
Students can be given the Request for Note-taker/ Reader Form from their SASC counselor.
NCR (carbon-free) paper is provided on an as-needed basis. SASC does not photocopy
notes for students.

Students registered with SASC are entitled to Priority Registration beginning with their second semester at Stony Brook. Priority Registration allows registered students with disabilities to consider their specific disability needs with regard to the scheduling of classes. Priority Registration dates and information are available through SOLAR enrollment appointments. (Typically early November and April.)
To take advantage of this policy, students are responsible for 1) preparing their class schedule on time and 2) clearing any blocks due to library fines, parking tickets, inadequate health records, etc.
When arranging your schedule, it is important to consider the time necessary to travel from building to building between classes. Also consider where you might have to park and the particular accessibility features of the buildings you will be using. Be sure to avoid scheduling classes back to back if you need extended test time. The Student Accessibility Support Center can answer questions about campus accessibility.
SASC Student Lounge
The SASC student lounge provides an informal location for students to meet. Lockers are available for both short term and semester use. Personal computers may be used by students to check e-mail, grades etc. Students Taking Aim at Challenges (STAC) also meets regularly in the lounge.
