Web Accessibility

Cal State LA is committed to making our websites and web applications accessible to everyone, including people with disabilities. Web accessibility is a shared responsibility, delegated to members of the Cal State LA community whose role involves creating or maintaining websites.

Cal State LA websites must conform to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA standards. WCAG 2.0 is a technical standard developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). It has 12 guidelines that are organized under 4 principles: perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust. For each guideline, there are testable success criteria which are at three levels: A, AA, and AAA.

Resources

This website provides resources for Cal State LA web designers, developers, and content creators to help them produce materials that are accessible to everyone.

Training

The ITS Training Program offers several workshops and online courses on web accessibility. All web authors who are responsible for creating or maintaining a Cal State LA website should attend these workshops or complete these online courses to learn how to make accessible websites.

Note: To access a Moodle course, you need to log in with your MyCalStateLA ID account.
