Accessibility Statement


CollegeSource, Inc. is committed to ensuring our website and our products are accessible to our users. We continually strive to improve accessibility and Section 508 compliance for all users. If you have questions or suggestions on access improvement, please contact us.

We maintain two types of documentation that demonstrate our ongoing commitment to product compliance with Section 508: the VPAT and the Accessibility Roadmap.

VPAT®

The Voluntary Product Accessibility Template®, or VPAT®, is a tool that was developed through collaborative efforts of the Information Technology Industry Council and the U.S. General Services Administration. Their goal was to develop an industry standard rubric for assessing the extent to which a commercial electronic and information technology product conforms with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, Section 1194.22 of which has significant overlap with several priority 1 Checkpoints of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (WCAG 1.0). CollegeSource utilizes the VPAT to inform clients about product-specific accessibility considerations.

For more information about the VPAT® and to view product-specific VPATs, see our  page in the Support Center.


Documentation for the Product VPATs are still maintained in the Support Center at this time.


Testing Documentation

Product VPAT content is validated in the Testing Documentation, which presents evaluation methods and results. Each unique product in the u.achieve Suite has its own Accessibility Testing Document. While we support all screen readers, our QA staff test using NVDA and our developers use VoiceOver.


Documentation for Testing is still maintained in the Support Center at this time.


Accessibility Roadmap

The Accessibility Roadmap identifies gaps in product accessibility (e.g., those identified by the VPAT) and proposes reasonable methods of remediation with respective time frames for completion. This tool sets benchmarks for progress and demonstrates a dedication to continuous product improvement.


Documentation for the Accessibility Roadmaps are still maintained in the Support Center at this time.


Accessibility Disclaimer


CollegeSource, Inc. is committed to making its website and suite of products accessible through constant review and redesign, as necessary, to ensure that they meet or exceed accessibility standards and guidelines. We appreciate your patience through this ongoing process.

Third Parties:

In our Support Center, CollegeSource documentation is maintained using a product called Confluence purchase from Atlassian. As of Confluence 4.2, a number of improvements for accessibility were made, including improved keyboard accessibility for menus and the addition of universal skip links to the top of all pages. Atlassian addresses Section 508 accessibility compliance within Confluence on the Atlassian website and within the Confluence User Community.

CollegeSource, Inc. incurs no responsibility for third party customization or manipulation of an application that compromises the intended accessibility of a product.
