The University strives to provide accessible web services, including persons who may have vision, hearing, mobility, or other conditions that may necessitate adaptive software/hardware, or consumer modification of font size, colors, response time, etc. As the University regularly upgrades our web services, improvements in the overall accessibility of its web pages will be a high priority.
If difficulty is experienced using University web pages, please contact Technology Services (firstname.lastname@example.org, 205-665-6512) or Disability Support Services (DSS@montevallo.edu, 205-665-6250) during regular business hours (M-F, 8 am – 5 pm ). This will allow the University to identify and correct access concerns, while providing the service or information in an alternate but timely manner.
