Policy exclusions must strictly fit one of the following definitions in the University policy, as outlined below:
- Individual Web pages published by students, employees, or non-university organizations that do not conduct University-related business. While all parties are encouraged to adopt the University’s Information and Communication Technology policy and standards, students, employees, or non-university organizations that do not conduct University-related business fall outside of the jurisdiction of this policy.
- Archived web pages and course content do not have to comply with the Standard unless specifically requested by a University student, faculty, or staff member with a disability.
- In order to use non-captioned video, the video must be contained in a secure, password-protected environment, there must be no students requiring captioning and the video can only be used for a single term. Other exclusions to captioning include student work and raw footage that will never be archived after the current use, as well as video with foreign language subtitles, and instructor-made videos that record feedback to an individual student who doesn’t require captioning.
- Single instance, specialized software or hardware purchased for individual use. (eg: A single researcher using specialized software or hardware for research purposes.)
