Website Accessibility

Commitment to Accessibility

Central Carolina Community College (CCCC) is committed to providing a college website (www.cccc.edu) that is usable and accessible by everyone, regardless of age, ability, or situation, and contains no barriers for users with disabilities.

CCCC measures and evaluates accessibility through two established sets of standards: WCAG 2.0 requirements issued by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and federal mandated specifications found in Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.

As part of this pledge to accessibility, users should expect to find the following features on each web page throughout the site:

  • Skip navigation links
  • AccessKeys
  • Adaptive/responsive page design
  • Appropriate usage of alternative text
  • Semantic HTML
  • Acceptable contrast ratios

In an effort to continually address accessibility, CCCC's web development team is dedicated to improving and implementing new methods to achieve this goal. Since every website user situation is unique, please contact web@cccc.edu if you are experiencing any issues. If you have a disability and need assistance, contact the Office of Special Populations at (919) 718-7416.
