When you come into the office to sign out the equipment there is a contract that you need to sign that specifies the conditions of the agreement. The wording of the contract is below. All equipment borrowed must be returned at the end of each semester.
The equipment listed on this contract is the property of Cleveland State University and is being loaned to me for use in my classes while I am enrolled at CSU.
I understand that the equipment must be maintained in good working order, and that I am responsible for replacement of the equipment if lost or damaged (other than regular use).
The equipment must be returned to the Office of Disability Services at the end of each semester. I will notify my ODS advisor of any problems or malfunction during use.
I also understand that I am responsible for the replacement cost of the equipment if it is not returned by the end of the semester. My signature on this contract authorizes that charge to be made to my account.
A student will need to fill out a form with this contract that gives your name, CSU ID, equipment, and a description of the condition of the equipment. If you need assistance filling out the form it will be available at our front desk.
The assistive technology borrowed by this agreement is a privilege extended to students registered with our office. If the student borrowing this equipment is abusing the equipment or not abiding by the terms of the agreement they may lose this privilege.
