Accessibility in the Classroom (Online)


The University is committed to providing accessible information in all forms. 

Electronic accessibility is a legal requirement, and is the responsibility of all faculty and staff on our campus.

UNC Charlotte is committed to ensuring that information is provided in an accessible format.  When developing information consider how individuals with disabilities will be able to access the information.  Electronic and paper-based information should be available in accessible formats for individuals with disabilities.  For more information about building accessible websites contact the Assistive Technology Specialist in the Office of Disability Services.

One way to make paper-based information, such as brochures and fliers, accessible for individuals with disabilities is to post them electronically on the website, AND in an accessible format.  There are clear guidelines for making electronic information accessible following Section 508 Guidelines.  If information is needed in Braille format, contact the Office of Disability Services for assistance.

Since UNC Charlotte websites are accessible and meet the standards of section 508 and the WCAG 2.0 AA, web developers, web communications, and the Office of Disability Services have decided to retire the text-only format of websites. Moreover, the software used to convert content to text-only is outdated and does not comply with current modern browsers and security measures.

Please use your screen reader or your preferred assistive technology to access websites. If you encounter any accessibility issues, email
