Accessibility at CSUSM

Web Accessibility - A Shared Responsibility!

California State University San Marcos is committed to ensuring that the campus web environment is accessible to everyone, especially those with disabilities. As a community, we work together to address the usability and accessibility of the web sites contained within CSUSM’s web environment.

The CSU requires faculty to provide accessible materials as part of their Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI). The Accessibile Technology Initiative calls for accessible classroom materials and includes all course materials and university websites. Existing material may need to be revised or reformatted to allow access to all viewers/students.


If your content is interacting with students and/or the general public, your content must follow accessibility requirements! It's the law.

All campus and community members have a part in creating accessible, usable information.

Accessibility issues consist of:

  • Documents or site content not optimized for screen readers
  • Videos that are not captioned
  • Images without alternative text
  • and more!

Users can report accessibility issues that are encountered within university-affiliated web sites.
