If after careful evaluation of all available resources and options it has determined that compliance with a provision of Texas A&M University Commerce's EIR Accessibility Policy imposes a significant difficulty or expense to the university, A&M Commerce staff/faculty may request an exception. An exception for significant difficulty or expense is not an exception to overall compliance, but rather is an exception only for the specific item or situation and requires a reasonable alternate method for access.
Approved exceptions to compliance with the Texas DIR accessibility rules allow a time-limited exception to the standard means of access to the EIR under consideration. Approved exceptions does not eliminate the University EIR owner's responsibility to provide access to the EIR by an alternate method or in an alternate format. Any request for an exception to the Texas or System's accessibility rules must be submitted to TAMU-Commerce EIR Accessibility Officer for review and processing.
Completed EIR Accessibility Exceptions Request Form (pdf) are submitted to the EIR Accessibility Officer for processing. Requests include a description of the accessibility issue, justification for exception, and plan for alternate means of access. Exceptions require approval by the CIO and President or designee who will specify an expiration date for an approved exception.
