Accessibility Statement

San Francisco State University is committed to creating a culture of access for an inclusive learning and working environment that ensures all campus information resources and technologies are fully accessible to everyone. This commitment is reflected in SF State’s implementation of the California State University (CSU) Accessible Technology Initiative.

Key accessibility features of SF State websites include:

  • An accessible website template for use by campus programs and departments 
  • Alternative text descriptions for meaningful non-textual elements
  • Access that does not require the use of a mouse
  • Association of form fields with proper labels
  • Association of all data cells in a data table with column and row headers
  • Information that is not dependent on color for meaning, and sufficient contrast between colored elements
  • Legible text that can be increased or decreased in sizes
  • Structural presentation to identify headings and lists

Technology Acquisitions

Technology products purchased, used, or supported by the campus are reviewed for accessibility before purchase via a Technology Acquisition Review. Such reviews may include extensive testing and/or collaboration with vendors as appropriate. Equally Effective Alternate Access Plans (EEAAP) are created for technology products that are not fully accessible. 


To request reasonable accommodations, students, faculty and staff should contact the Disability Programs & Resource Center (DPRC).
