Sign Language Interpreters and Transcribers

Sign Language Interpreters and Transcribers are available for academic purposes primarily for students with a hearing loss or those who are deaf.

Student Responsibility:

  • Long-term requests for classes must be completed at least one month prior to the beginning of the semester.
  • One day requests must be completed at least five business days before the interpreter/transcriber is needed.
  • If a deadline is missed, the Disability Specialist will attempt to secure interpreters/transcribers, but they may not be available due to short notice or scheduling conflicts
