Providing access is a cooperative effort by the entire campus community; all academic offices and departments must be in compliance in order for the institution to be in compliance.

  • Inclusive instruction & accessible instructional material, accessible media policies
  • Identify and document essential academic and interpersonal elements of each course and program of study
  • Notify Disability Services if requested accommodation represents a fundamental alteration of essential elements
