Accessibility Exception Process

Working Draft

This page contains the most current draft of the Accessibility Exception Process. It is subject to minor changes as the policy nears its final form.

  1. The Requesting Individual obtains approval from their Unit Head to file an Exception Request.
  2. The Requesting Individual fills out the Exception Request web form.
    • The form must include Unit Head's name and NetID
    • The form must notify the Unit Head when it is submitted
    • The form will submit to a resource account, and a TARC designee will check it.
  3. The TARC reviews the evaluation request
    1. TARC designee determines if all request information is sufficient for review. If not sufficient, the designee notifies the requestor of what further information is needed
    2. TARC designee notifies the rest of the TARC that an exception has been received
    3. TARC members review request and either give their approval/denial vote
      • If the TARC determines that more information is needed, the TARC designee will contact the individual making the request to ask for further information. The Designee will notify the TARC when the requested information is received.
      • Exception requests will be reviewed weekly. In most instances, the TARC reviews the exception requests in the order that they are received.
  4. The Chancellor's office is notified about the exception request and the TARCs decision (approval/ denial, any qualifications)
    • The Chancellor's office has the option of overriding our decision or requesting further review.
  5. The Requesting Individual and their Unit Head is notified of the TARC's decision
  6. The Requesting Individual and their Unit head may request an appeal
    1. Appeals are directed to the Chancellor's Office. Appeals must be accompanied by a rationale for the appeal.
    2. The Chancellor's Office makes final determination of the appeal
    3. The TARC, the Requesting Individual, and Unit Head are notified of the final decision.

    Note: Appeal decisions are final.
