Site Standards

The college uses the following design and technical standards for college and college-affiliated sites:

What if something within the standards is not appropriate for my site?

The college's Web standards are drawn from research-based, widely accepted best practices. However, there may be times a particular audience, content type or purpose requires something outside the standards. Personal preference or taste is not grounds for an exception. The site steward must provide justification for any exception.

If an exception is granted, OCGR and OIT will work with the site steward or their designee to develop a viable alternative on a case-by-case basis, within the scope of the college's financial, technical and personnel resources.
