University Statement on Web Accessibility

The University at Albany is committed to providing access to our electronic and information technology, including our web pages, for individuals with disabilities in accordance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.

UAlbany is working to ensure that members of our community with disabilities, and members of the public with disabilities seeking information or services from us, have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to the access and use by community members, or members of the public who are not individuals with disabilities. To meet this commitment, we are in the process of re-designing our web pages to meet the standards of the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C's), Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA, and the Web Accessibility Initiative Accessible Rich Internet Applications Suite (WAI-ARIA) 1.0 for web content.

If you have a disability and any material on our web pages interferes with your ability to access the information, please contact UAlbany’s Disability Resource Center (DRC) — DRC@albany.edu — and indicate:

  • The nature of your accessibility or alternative format needs
  • The URL (web address) of the material you would like to access
  • Your contact information

The DRC will contact you to attempt to provide the information you are seeking and will seek to resolve any issues regarding inaccessibility of the information on official UAlbany websites. Your request will be referred to the appropriate Department component, and the component will respond to your request. To enable us to respond in a manner most helpful to you, please indicate the nature of the accessibility problem, the web address of the requested material, your preferred format in which you want to receive the material (electronic format (ASCII, etc.), standard print, large print, etc.) and your contact information.

If you would like to share concerns or file a complaint regarding the accessibility of UAlbany’s website for persons with disabilities, please contact:
