Registration, class search and pre-registration requirement processes are part of the CU-SIS Campus Solutions application that students access through the MyCUInfo portal. The application is built by Oracle and is supported by University Information Systems (UIS), for the purpose of student administration functions including admissions, financial aid, student financials and student records.
In February 2015, CU-Boulder commissioned an expert accessibility review of the Registration process. The review identified a number of issues that are likely to make course registration difficult for people with certain disabilities.
The issues mean that navigation, accessing and reading information, and entering data is likely to be more difficult, and in some cases impossible, for people who are affected.
Currently, people using screen readers may find it difficult to proceed through all the course registration features without assistance.
Below are some notes for using keyboard navigation and assistive technology.
A number of the issues identified in last year's audit have been addressed by code changes, and more are expected to be fixed this spring. However, even after these changes, registration and course search will remain difficult to use for students with disabilities. The Campus Solutions application (in which registration resides) will be upgraded during the 2017-18 academic year, and the student self-service features will be redesigned to be more accessible. During the upgrade, CU will perform usability assessments and make recommendations to Oracle or modify the code as appropriate to address accessibility issues. In the interim, OIT will re-evaluate registration and course search in its Accessibility and Usability Lab, to identify if there are further issues that can be locally remediated.
