ADA Process for APA Publications

Requests to APA Publications for alternate delivery of instructional material in order to be compliant with federal and state disability laws are processed by the APA Permissions Office.

Before submitting a request, institutions should first check other sources such as the Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic or Library of Congress, and, in certain states, such as California and Texas, the exchange centers for those states.

APA owns all rights to the Book electronic files and the institution/student only have a right to a one-time, limited use.

A fee of the retail price of the print book shall be paid to APA for the license for electronic access to the Book. The Fee will be waived if the institution verifies that the student has purchased a print copy of the Book.

Requests may take up to 1 month to process. The APA Publisher will try to supply art, photographs, charges, and tables if possible.

The APA Permissions Office will comply with the disability request when the factors listed below have been satisfied.

By checking the boxes below, you are acknowledging that:
   The institution maintains a record of student’s documented disability(ies).
   The institution has verified that the student is registered in a course or courses for which the text is required or suggested for successful course completion.
   A fee of the retail price of the print book shall be paid to APA for the license for electronic access to the Book. The Fee will be waived if the institution verifies that the student has purchased a print copy of the Book.
   Permission will allow a single student with documented disability(ies) to use a single copy of the electronic file in a protected account.
   The “License Agreement for Student Use of Book Electronic File” (PDF: 23K) is signed by an official of the institution and returned to APA (fax 202-336-5633).
   An “APA Permission Student Publishing End User Agreement” (PDF: 13K) is signed by the student and filed by the institution--one student agreement for each book requested.
