A Temporary Exception may be requested when conformance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0, Level A and Level AA standard, is not technically feasible or would result in a fundamental alteration of the nature of the services provided through the electronic content. Temporary Exceptions are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and through an interactive process with the product owner or designated representative.
As part of the Temporary Exception request, the product owner or designated representative submitting the request will engage with the Office of Digital Accessibility to identify potential alternate access options resulting from the accessibility barriers. The Office of Digital Accessibility may engage with the Office of Accessible Education (for academic-related issues) or Diversity and Access Office (for non-academic-related issues) as part of this effort.
After submitting a Temporary Exception request, the Office of Digital Accessibility will follow-up with you within 5 business days to initiate next steps.
