Electronic / Digital Accessibility
At Purchase College, we are committed to create, obtain, and maintain electronic documents, websites, media, software, and hardware in a manner that ensures it is accessible.
Purchase College requires all online Purchase College materials on local or third party systems to be accessible and in line with the Electronic Information Technology Accessibility (EITA) Policy
What is accessible technology?
Accessible content increases student engagement, retention and success. Accessible electronic and information technology can be accessed by people with a wide range of abilities. When technology has been developed with accessibility in mind, incorporating the principles of universal design, all users are able to interact with the technology in the ways that work best for them. Accessible technology may be usable without assistive technology or may be compatible with standard assistive technology such as screen readers.
How do I make my content accessible?
