Website Accessibility Policy

Farmingdale State College is committed to ensuring accessibility of its website to people with disabilities. Farmingdale seeks to make sure the website conforms to the Americans with Disabilities Act, Sections 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and New York State Technology Policy 99-3. New and updated web content on http://www.farmingdale.edu/ follows the W3C WAI's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0, Level AA. Any issues should be reported to webmastr@farmingdale.edu.

Content Management System

Farmingdale State College uses OU Campus as its Content Management System to manage the website.  In order to make it easier for Content Contributors to create accessible pages, the college provides web templates through OU Campus that meet many standard accessibility requirements. Content Contributors need to do their part by making sure that the content they add to those templates conforms to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Conformance Level AA guidelines by checking for “W3C validation” and “Web Accessibility” before publishing content.

Some of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Conformance Level AA guidelines enforced on our website includes:


  • Use the "alt" tag to describe images by filling out the Image Description and Title fields with meaningful text.
  • Provide text links if using graphical elements for navigation.


  • Link text should be meaningful enough to make sense when read out of context.

For example, write "Read more information about the department" instead of "Click here."

Word and PDF Documents

  • Ensure that uploaded Word and PDF documents are properly saved for ADA compliance.

Farmingdale State College will conduct periodic web audits to the Website to ensure that the above guidelines are continuously followed.
