Accessibility

College Foundation of North Carolina is committed to providing access to everyone seeking information on its services and strives to maximize the accessibility for all website users, including those with disabilities. If you or someone you know requires additional assistance, the CFNC Call Center can support you in a variety of ways, including reviewing site information, completing forms and applications, and accessing other functionality on our webpages.

We recognize that our website users may have other disability-related needs, so if you or someone you know uses special adaptive equipment to access the web and encounters problems when using our site, please contact us by phone or email. If the accessibility problem involves a particular web page, please let us know the URL (web address) of the page and the browser you are using.

Hardware and Software Requirements

The www.CFNC.org and www.NCAssist.org websites are designed to work properly with the following browser versions:



We support the current and previous major releases of Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome on a rolling basis. Each time a new version is released, we begin supporting that version and stop supporting the third most recent version. Select a browser from the list above to get the latest version.

Support for Java, JavaScript, and cookies must be enabled in either browser and can be "turned on" via the Options dialog box in Firefox or the Internet options dialog box in Internet Explorer. The dialog boxes can be accessed from the Tools menu on each browser. In Chrome, select Settings, Show advanced settings and Content settings button to enable these options.

To access any secure portion of the website, your browser will need to support 256-bit encryption.

The website is best viewed with a screen resolution of 1024 x 768 or higher.

PDF Documents

In order to view, print, or download the PDF versions of documents on CFNC.org, Adobe Acrobat or another PDF viewer is required. These files may not open properly with older versions of the plug in. Minimize risk when accessing Adobe Acrobat files by using the latest release of Acrobat Reader. Visit http://www.adobe.com/products/reader for more information.


Security

If your computer utilizes Norton Internet Security, you may need to make a configuration change to your Privacy Controls within Norton Internet Security in order to use the ncassist.org site properly.

Another method would be to change the URL in your browser to read https://www.ncassist.org/ since some firewalls limit functionality when not already connected to a secure site.
