Web Accessibility Compliance and Reporting
Expectations and Extensions
Requests for extensions or exceptions to the Policy will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis by the campus Equal Opportunity Officer. A request for an extension or exception must be made, in writing, to your campus Equal Opportunity Officer. At West Lafayette, that is the Director of the Office of Institutional Equity. The Equal Opportunity Officer will evaluate each request on a case-by-case basis. Requests for extensions should include the reason compliance cannot be accomplished in the requisite time frame along with an anticipated time frame for compliance and/or the proposed alternative. Requests for exceptions may be granted where compliance is not technically possible or may require extraordinary measures due to the nature of the information and the intent of the Web page. Requests for exceptions must be based on issues other than cost alone.
At this time, units are not required to submit a Status Report Form. OIE is exploring the use of a new tool to assist with compliance and reporting. The goal is to provide this tool free of charge to colleges, schools, departments, programs, or units. Per the Policy, the university will be reviewing and making necessary revisions to this policy including revisions to the compliance requirements and reporting. If you have any questions regarding reporting, please contact the Office of Institutional Equity at firstname.lastname@example.org, (765) 494-7253, or (765) 494-1343 (TTY).
