Accessibility

Font Size: Larger /Smaller

Accessibility by all is a top priority at Big Bend Community College (BBCC). This website has been designed to use Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for layout where possible. Due to limitations of CSS, there are still portions of the layout that require the use of tables. The site has been designed and coded with accessibility in mind.

BBCC provides space for departments and instructors to host webpages. These webpages may not be accessible. However, BBCC will do everything possible to ensure that pages developed by the college are accessible and make every effort to be in compliance with Section 504 and WA Policy #188.
