ASL, CART, and CC for Students

For students to receive the accommodation of SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETERS, CART, or closed CAPTIONING for classes, meetings, and student events they must be registered with the Office of Disability Services. Requests for ASL, CART, and Closed Captioning must be placed by requesting your Faculty Notification Letters in our online system. To Guarantee that we are able to accommodate a student using ASL or CART we need students to submit their requests for those services given the following advanced notice.

  • 10 business days for classes
  • 2 business days for meetings, events, or tutoring sessions

Your requests for those accommodations in regularly scheduled classes must be submitted by requesting your Faculty Notification Letter request in our online system. If you need an interpreter for course activities outside of class time, appointments, events, tutoring, or other campus activities we will need you to submit those request through the Custom Request form in the Disability Services Online System. We need those requests 2 days before the event which you need the service. The request cut off time is at 4:00PM 2 days before the event.

Closed captioning for content in classes should be prompted to start by requesting your faculty notification letters.
