Partnership Strengthens Upgrade Accessibility for People with Disabilities

When The Upgrade launches on April 20, a new MyU will provide additional self-service functions for students, staff, and faculty. The Disability Resource Center (DRC) and The Upgrade staff have established an innovative partnership and brought on additional resources to make these systems as accessible as possible for people with disabilities who use adaptive technologies (AT).

While MyU will be accessible to people who use AT, some of the new and expanded self-service processes will not yet be ready for AT at launch time (see the list of processes ready for AT). The University is committed to bridging this gap to move toward full accessibility.

If you have not yet requested that we turn on the accessible format for you, and would like to have it when the upgraded systems launch, contact Scott Marshall now. After launch, email or call 1HELP to turn the accessible format on or off.

All students, staff, and faculty can receive support during The Upgrade from their regular contact centers:
  1. Students with questions about registration, financial aid, billing, payment, student records, and veterans benefits, should contact their campus One Stop office:
  2. University staff and faculty with HR process questions should contact ohr@umn.edu or 1-800-756-2363
Stay up-to-date on accessibility at the Disability Resource Center's Upgrade accessibility page, the Upgrade blog, or email Scott Marshall to receive accessibility-related emails.
