American Sign Language & Interpreting

Foreign Language Credit

Senate Bill 42, passed in 1994, provides that American Sign Language shall be accorded equal status with other linguistic systems in the State's public and higher education systems; and directing the State Board of Education and the State Board of Regents to develop and implement policies and procedures for the teaching of American Sign Language in their respective states.

American Sign Language courses can be taken to satisfy Foreign Language requirements at Salt Lake Community College.

In the event that a student can document a hearing loss and they demonstrate ASL is their first language, it is possible to take an additional ENGL 2000+ course after ENGL 1010 and 2010 and count it as the (AA) Language requirement.  Other options may be available, contact the American Sign Language Department for details.
