BPCC Web Site Accessibility

The BPCC web site pages are checked using W3C validation. W3C follows the Web Content Guidelines as noted in the Americans with Disabilities Act. We strive to make the BPCC web site experience as accessible as possible to all individuals. However, due to the large variety and amount of content on our site, and ever-changing world of technology, there may be portions that are not accessibility compliant. If you find any aspect of our web site for which this is the case, please email the Interim Student and Disability Services Specialist at or call 318-678-6511 and we will strive to correct the issue wherever possible.
