[nabs-l] taking a college class for no credit

Dude, don't, do, that.  It's just not worth it!
I'm usually not this emphatic, but you have an entire list who can answer
any questions about tests, and accommodations if you want.  You can call me
on the phone, or what have you, but shenanigans of that sort are not worth
the risk in my opinion.
You might be able to get away with it; the course does not count, but I
really think your best bet is not to do that and take that kind of a chance.

Pull up your college's disability office on the web and familiarize yourself
with their services.  When you get there, sign up as a student.  
Get your class syllabi a little early, go through them, and see what your
assignments are.   
If you have any questions, we'll help you with the rest

To be completely honest, your best option might be to simly not take the
college class with LCB.

I didn't do any Blindness Training, and I had no experience trying to get
accomidations at college before I went to college. Other people might
disagree with me, but it just may not be worth losing your scholarship.

Good luck to you!
