Other individuals who seek accommodations should contact the College’s Information Technology Services office.

Undue burden and non-availability may qualify as an exemption from this Policy when compliance is not technically possible or is unreasonably burdensome in that it would require extraordinary measures due to the nature of the request or would fundamentally alter the purpose of the Digital Technology.
  3. When conducting core academic and business activities using web content, the goal of the College shall be to align the web content with the guidelines of the most current version of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Level AA (WCAG 2.0 AA).
