Student Support #10
10 Policy, processes, and resources are in place to support students with disabilities.
Deficient Developing Accomplished Exemplary
Physical or Learning Disability
If a student has a learning disability – or thinks that they have – they can register with the Accessible Education Center (AEC) which works with online students as well as on campus students.
If the AEC determines that an accommodation is required a member of its staff notifies the faculty member teaching the class.
Web Site and Technology Compliance
The California State University requires full compliance with Section 508.
- Web sites must be in full compliance.
- All videos are captioned. The iSchool uses a captioning service: Automatic Sync.
- All audio is transcribed
- Panopto is automatically captioned.
- We provide live transcription help during live web conferencing sessions when we have a student who needs it.
ADA Compliance in Purchasing
All hardware and software purchases have to pass California State University accessibility approval. Products that are used by students must go through VPAT.
Faculty must provide textbook information at least 2 months before classes start in order to allow for students to obtain textbooks in a variety of formats. Textbook selections are reported to the university and they are posted on the school's web site, on the university bookstore site, and within MySJSU prior to registration.
