Adaptive Services has some equipment, recorded books, and other materials available for student use. Some equipment is also available for student loan. Students are asked to sign a loan agreement form when equipment is checked out of the office. All equipment must be returned at the end of each semester. If you do not return equipment, an encumbrance will be placed on your records. If equipment is damaged, students may be expected to pay for its repair.
