Troy University is committed to providing accessible online content to all users as required by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. In order to receive disability benefits, all users must have identified themselves to the University as disabled, have submitted all the required documentation, and been awarded disability accommodations by the University.
“Accessible” is defined as the following: “A person with a disability is afforded the opportunity to acquire the same information, engage in the same interactions, and enjoy the same services as a person without a disability in an equally effective and equally integrated manner, within the same timeframes, and with substantially equivalent ease of use.”
Should a student or employee require accessible online content, and through their use of an official Troy website or its learning management system (Canvas), discover that any content is not accessible, then that student should immediately notify the Disability Services Coordinator that initially approved him or her for accommodations, or the employee should contact the Human Resources Department. Upon notice or request, inaccessible content and functionality will be made accessible in an expedient manner.
This agreement does not require the University to take any action that it can demonstrate would result in a fundamental alteration in the nature of a service, program, or activity or in the undue financial and administrative burdens. In those circumstances where the University can demonstrate compliance would result in such an alteration or burden, the University will ensure that to the maximum extent possible, individuals with disabilities receive the benefits or services provided.
