COVID-19 Response: Stay up to date.

Committed to ensuring equal access

Updated February 19, 2020

Surry Community College complies with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) to provide support services for students, including services for students with disabilities and other special needs.

In addition, the college follows the Website Content Accessibility Guidelines (WACG 2.0 Level AA) outlined by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) as recommended by the North Carolina Community College System.

Web accessibility ensures that all digital content can be navigated and read by everyone, regardless of location, experience, technology, or disability. Digital content must be:

  • Perceivable — through text alternatives, captioning and sufficient contrast
  • Operable — through keyboard accessibility, sufficient timing functions and easy navigation functions
  • Understandable — through readable text and predictable functions
  • Robust — allowing compatibility with present and future technologies

The Surry Community College Accessibility Committee was formed in 20XX to address gaps in the process that ensures all content is accessible. Download the Accessibility Compliance Plan that details the steps SCC is taking to provide equal access for our community.

New web content produced by Surry will meet WCAG 2.0 conformance Level AA. Please report any issues to webservices@surry.edu.
