Web Accessibility

Missouri State strives to make all official University web pages, including University unit, sponsored organization and course pages on all campuses, ultimately accessible to all users, including to those with disabilities. As part of this initiative, the University is reviewing official web sites to check their compliancy with web access standards.

Your Part

All official web sites must comply with the Universal Access section of the Missouri State Web Policy. The University has laid out the procedures for becoming compliant in the Web Access Action Plan.


The Web Access Compliance Team (WACT) offers training and resources materials on developing accessible web pages. The federal Access Board has issued checkpoints on how to develop an accessible web page—see the checkpoints page for details.

WACT will also review your web pages to let you know exactly what needs to be changed or updated. Once they review your pages, they'll meet with you and provide a report outlying what changes need to be made. Then you'll have six months to make any necessary changes.
