If you encounter something that is not accessible, please contact Disability Services.
Students who need accommodations for coursework should contact Disability Services.

Example Web Guidelines for ADA Compliance
- All content on a web page must be accessible to assistive technology such as a screen magnifier to enlarge text or a screen reader to read the page aloud.
- Images, especially those conveying information, must include a text description in the form of an ALT tag.
- Transcripts and closed captioning should accompany audio and video assets.
- Web page information must be accessible using only the keyboard because users with mobility impairments might not be able to use a mouse.
- Color contrasts must be highly readable.
- A website must be easily navigated. A method of bypassing repetitive navigational links is required, and navigation must be consistent.
- To provide enough time to read and use content, users must have control over any automatic audio material, animation or movement on the page, such as changing or muting volume, pausing video, or cancelling an animation. If during a web page session, content will automatically change, reload or expire, the page must provide user options for controlling such changes.
