Access South Carolina Information Technology (ASCIT)

Access South Carolina IT is a program centered on the accessibility of electronic and information technology. ASCIT has its origins in the 2000 Appropriations Bill passed by the General Assembly where it obtained funds to create accessible computer workstations across South Carolina. Since that time, ASCIT has evolved into a network of state agencies, universities, and many others with a commitment to accessibility of information technology in South Carolina.
