ASL Interpreter Request Form
When you need an ASL Interpreter, we appreciate as much advance notice as possible for coordinating schedules on the Interpreter's calendar. You will receive a confirmation email that your request form has been received, then DSS will contact you for additional information and scheduling.

Unless this request is cancelled more than 24 hours in advance, charges will still be applied for the Interpreters (per vendor contract/billing policy). Note, typically, two Interpreters are assigned for jobs that are more than 1 hour in length.
Providing ASL Interpreters for an event
Be sure to include an accessibility notice on all event advertising that lets people know how to make a request for ASL Interpreting or other accommodation needs.
Please remember that DSS assists with coordinating the ASL Interpreters schedule, but does not cover the cost for a public event. Individual departments or entities sponsoring events need to have an accommodation budget to cover any related costs. This responsibility is part of the campus-wide commitment to the responsibility of ensuring equal access.
