At Texas Christian University, we are committed to accessibility, diversity and inclusion. We believe all of our students, prospective students, parents, faculty and staff should be able to have equal and effective access to our core websites, smartphone apps, chat and digital content. In doing so, Texas Christian University has a goal to comply with applicable accessibility regulations including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
Digital Accessibility Statement
Our target accessibility standard is the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Level AA. To meet this standard, we have dedicated resources to our digital accessibility compliance effort, including those who coordinate the effort, and those responsible for designing, developing and testing our core websites, smartphone apps, chat and digital content. We also work to ensure that our support documentation and services meet accessibility requirements. We collaborate with peer groups, industry partners and vendors to identify areas that need improvement.
Reporting a Barrier
TCU shall make reasonable accommodations in policies, practices, and procedures, when the accommodations are necessary to afford the opportunity for equal access to educational programs, activities and services to qualified individuals with disabilities, unless the accommodations would fundamentally alter the nature of the programs, activities or services or constitute an undue burden.
If you encounter a physical, electronic or programmatic barrier on the TCU campus or its website, please help us identify the barrier so we can take appropriate action. Accessibility concerns may be reported using the Report a Barrier Form.
