Alternative Means of Access


Even if you are granted an exception, you must still provide an alternative means of access to persons with disabilities.

Section 508

Under Section 508 Standards, if acquiring an E&IT product or service would impose an undue burden or is an approved exception, SJSU still has a statutory obligation to make information and data available by an alternative means of access.

Section 504

Under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, SJSU has an obligation to provide employees with disabilities reasonable accommodations, which focus on the needs of a particular individual with a disability.

Plans for Alternate Access

When an exception from Section 508 standards is approved, the Section 508 Compliance Specialist and you, in consultation with appropriate campus offices, will assess the potential impact on students, employees and members of the public and plan for alternate access methods and/or accommodation for persons with disabilities.
