Accessibility

Mission

Apollo Education Group and University of Phoenix are committed to ensuring equal access to information for all. We support creating an environment where a person with a disability can acquire the same information, engage in the same interactions and enjoy the same services as a person without a disability, and be able to do so in an equally effective manner, with substantially equivalent ease of use. Our accessibility policy follows established benchmark standards for the accessibility of web-based products and services considered necessary to meet this goal and ensure compliance with applicable state and federal regulations.

University of Phoenix policy

The University will develop, procure, maintain and use information and communication technology that ensure people with disabilities have comparable access to them.

All new or modified online content and functionality, including the education platform features, will be accessible to people with disabilities as measured by conformance to the benchmark standards set forth below, except where doing so would impose a fundamental alteration or undue burden.

In the event of a fundamental alteration or undue burden, the University will nevertheless provide equally effective alternate access. Alternate access will ensure, to the maximum extent possible, that persons with disabilities are afforded an equal opportunity to obtain the same result, to gain the same benefit, or to reach the same level of achievement, in the most integrated setting appropriate to the person’s needs. The University is committed to provide information where you can perceive, operate and understand.

Accessibility & Usability Specialists

University of Phoenix designated Accessibility & Usability Specialists within the Disability Services Department to work with Accessibility Leadership to ensure the policies are adopted and supported.

Accessibility & Usability Specialists work in conjunction with the Office of the Provost and Apollo Information Technology.
