Example of Undue Burden

President’s Office decides to purchase a computer program that generates maps denoting regional demographics. The cost of acquiring an accessible version of the program would exceed the entire Operating Budget for the campus. This cost would be considered an undue burden. If the President’s Office is to claim an undue burden so that it can procure the inaccessible version, it must document that exception, obtain the approval and signature of the official charged with making 508 exceptions and be prepared to provide the map demographic information in an alternative manner to users with disabilities.
