Third-party form requirements

If any form other than a FormAssembly form is used on a Marquette University website, it must meet the university’s standards in these areas:

Health information and student privacy protection

Make sure no one is entering health information or protected student information into third-party forms. View Marquette’s guidelines on HIPAA and FERPA.

Spam protection

As we have been the target of spam attacks, the form must use a reCAPTCHA or similar spam protection that can differentiate people from robots.


Over half of all web traffic takes place on a mobile device. To account for this, the form must be accessible with a mobile device. Test on your smart phone or use an emulator on your desktop computer.


We are required to meet Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0 AA) to make sure our sites are usable by visitors with impairments. You can use their online tool to check your form for issues.


If the form is for an official Marquette event or will be placed on a website, OMC needs to review it before it goes live. Please send to
