Murray State College Online is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability. We aim to adhere as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0, Level AA), published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines explain how to make Web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user-friendly to everyone. Whilst Murray State College Online strives to adhere to the guidelines and standards for accessibility, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website and we are currently working to achieve this. Be aware that due to the dynamic nature of the website, minor issues may occasionally occur as it is updated regularly. We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility.
If you have any comments and or suggestions relating to improving the accessibility of our site, please don't hesitate to contact our ADA coordinator, Paula Henley, by phone at (580) 319-0316 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your feedback will help us make improvements.
Americans with Disabilities Act
Murray State College works to make programs and facilities available to all students. Students may request services by contacting the following intake person:
Charles Coulter, Testing Center Coordinator
Paula Michael, Testing Center Coordinator
Requesting Accommodations and Services
Please make arrangements as early as possible to ensure timely assistance.
Students will need to provide written documentation from a treating professional documenting the student's disability and requested accommodations.
Documentation needs to be current within two years of requesting accommodations.
Documentation will be submitted to either Charles Coulter (Tishomingo) or Paula Michael (Ardmore) and notification of accommodations will be sent to the student's instructors.
Students will need to touch base every semester and update accommodation requests for notifications to be sent out.
Accommodations must be supported by the documentation provided and must be deemed reasonable. Reasonable means that it meets the specific need of the student, does not present an undue financial burden to the College and does not alter a core component of a class or academic curriculum of the College.
