What are the timelines associated with making websites accessible?

Printer-friendly versionSend to friendPDF version

Accessible Technology Initiative timelines set by the Chancellor's Office are as follows:

No later than September 1, 2007: New and update administrative websites, web applications, and web content produced by the CSU or by third-party developers should, at a minimum, conform to baseline accessibility standards as defined in Section 508, Subpart B, and where appropriate, Subpart C (http://www.access-board.gov/sec508/standards.htm). This timeline applies only to administrative sites. The deadlines applied to instructional sites are provided in the Instructional Materials section of this memo.

May 15, 2009: All administrative sites that are critical to institutional access (as established in the Web Accessibility Implementation Plan) should, at a minimum, conform to baseline accessibility standards as defined in Section 508. If remediation or replacement of the website is not possible or would constitute an undue burden, then a plan to provide an equally effective alternate form of access must be developed, documented, and communicated.

May 15, 2012:
All websites at the CSU should fully conform to Section 508. Once again, undue burden plan requirements (as described above) apply.
