SUNY Buffalo State's websites are designed to be accessible for all users. We are committed to accessibility—users with vision, motor, or hearing impairments, as well as browsers with older equipment, can experience our site. Our sites are standards-compliant, all of our sites are tested to meet the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) standards guidelines.
According to New York State Office for Technology's Technology Policy 99-3, all official New York State websites must meet the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) 14 Web accessibility guidelines under priority-level one. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 requires that U.S. programs and services be accessible to individuals with disabilities. Websites generated from the college’s official installation of Drupal meet these guidelines.
