Yellow rectangle with MyBMAC text listed in rectangle

The Bob Murphy Access Center (BMAC) is excited to announce the launch of MyBMAC, an interactive web-based database whichoperates by providing a streamlined accommodation process that centralizes the communication of accommodation requests/approval between students, faculty, and BMAC staff. MyBMAC is accessible through the Single Sign-On (SSO) MyBMAC chiclet.

MyBMAC Database Overview

MyBMAC will allowfor the following types of access:

Student ability to request accommodations online as well as update their information as needed. Students may access the following:

1. New student application

2. Appointment scheduling system

3. COVID-19 Accommodation Request Form

4. Request BMAC Accommodations and Services

5. Course Notetaking Services

Faculty who are teaching a course during a semester with registered BMAC students may view approved academic accommodations for students registered in the course(s) they teach, as well asaccess the following:

1. Student Accommodation Letters

· Faculty will receive MyBMAC email notifications if there are registered BMAC students in their course with approved accommodations. If there are no BMAC students registered, MyBMAC will not display any information.

2. Alternative Testing

· Faculty will be able to view all student-requested exam date/time requests and approve/deny as appropriate.

· Faculty may complete one testing agreement for quizzes, exams, or finals for all BMAC students; faculty will also be able to customize individual exam instructions for specific course sections.

· Faculty may upload exams on MyBMAC's secure server. Faculty can also choose to designate specific exam version(s) to be used across multiple students/course sections.

*During this time of COVID-19, we ask for faculty flexibility and understanding as BMAC continues to offer limited proctoring to students whose accommodations cannot be replicated within the home/virtual environment. All proctoring requests will be scheduled within BMAC’s availability. Faculty will be asked to accommodate students who solely need extended time accommodations.

3.Course Notetaking Services

· Faculty will be able to see assigned course notetakers and review notes that have been uploaded.

COVID-19 Note:

Students who are considered to be in an at-risk category based on current CDC COVID-19 guidelines may request reasonable accommodations through submission of the COVID-19 Accommodation Request Form. This form is applicable to students who are unable to wearface coverings while on campus or who are experiencing COVID-related impacts.

As BMAC staff continues to provide virtual accommodations and support to CSULB students and faculty during this time of COVID-19, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions at bmac@csulb.edu or (562) 985-5401.

Thank you,
