Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Services

The Disability Resource Center (DRC) proudly provides Deaf and hard-of-hearing students with access to services including Sign Language Interpreting, Real-Time Captioning, note-taking services, and an Assistive Listening Device (ALD) loan program in an effort to promote language equality, empower students, and assist them in the attainment of their academic and vocational goals.

For more information on how to request interpreting/CART services, click here.

Please turn in your accommodations requests immediately after registering for classes. Students who register early will have more open classes to choose from. Turning in interpreting/ accommodations requests early will also help the DRC to support your language access needs most successfully.
