Accessibility at Fullerton College

Fullerton College is committed to the idea that accessibility is everyone’s responsibility. Responsibility for accessibility is neither “mine” nor “yours”; it is ours. The information, tips, and tutorials on this page will guide you toward building accessibility into your courses and day-to-day work.

We recommend starting with the Accessibility Quick Tips and the Accessibility Basics Guide. The guides are all designed so you can print them out and keep them at your desk for reference!
