The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibits discrimination on the
basis of disability in programs conducted by Federal agencies, in
programs receiving Federal financial assistance, in Federal
employment, and in the employment practices of Federal
Section 504 states that "no qualified individual with a
disability in the United States shall be excluded from, denied the
benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under" any program
or activity that either receives Federal financial assistance or is
conducted by any Executive agency.
Section 508 now establishes requirements for electronic and
information technology developed, maintained, procured, or used by
the Federal government. Section 508 requires Federal electronic and
information technology to be accessible to people with
disabilities, including employees and members of the public.
In December 2000 the Federal Access Board issued final standards
for electronic and information technology under Section 508 of the
Rehabilitation Act. These were adopted and published in the Federal
Registrar in April 2001 with enforcement to begin June 21,
While these standards currently apply to federal government, it
is the practice of Mount Saint Mary College and their web designers
and developers to become familiar with these accessibility
guidelines and to apply these principles in designing and creating
the official Mount Saint Mary College websites.
