Accessibility Options and Website Appearance

To make the NDSU website accessible for as many users as possible, we have chosen to follow the format used by the Great Lakes Disability and Business Technical Assistance Center.

This format enables users to choose a layout to navigate the site according to their preference using Cascading Style Sheets. The style sheets available are:

  1. Text only style sheet. A linear page layout for people using screen readers, handheld devices or older browsers.
  2. High contrast style sheet. Black test on a white background.
  3. High contrast style sheet. White text on a black background.
  4. Default style sheet. Best viewed with Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or Netscape Navigator 4.5 or higher versions.

To implement these features, click on the style sheet you prefer above, which will take you to a different page. On that page you will be instructed to go back to this page and click the refresh button to complete the process.

If you experience any difficulties, please contact We look forward to receiving your feedback on this accessibility feature, and how we can improve it.
