You need the following things to upload a Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT).

  1. A PDF or word document of your VPAT (PDF is preferred)
  2. A College Station main campus NetID and Password
  3. Repository permissions (Complete the form under "I need access" or send email message to:
    coe-accessibility@tamu.edu)

Once you have these three things, you’re good to go.


Check for Duplicates

Log into the repository (see Logging in and Navigating) to do a search. Do not skip this step!

Search Repository Image
  • Different versions of VPATs do not count as duplicates.
    • e.g. we can have a VPAT for WordArt 1.0 and WordArt 2.0
    • but never the same document twice

Logging into the Upload Form

Do you have your main campus NetID and password? Great!

Upload Form Login
  • Navigate to the upload form
  • Enter your NetID and password (the NetID issued to you by College Station main campus)

Filling Out the Upload Form

Most, if not all of this information should be available on the first page of the VPAT.
