ASL Interpreting/Captioning

The Disability Resource Center assists with coordinating all ASL interpreting and real-time captioning requests on SLCC campuses.

If you have questions please contact the Interpreter Manager Julie Smith at julie.smith@slcc.edu or 801-957-4854.

ADA accommodations for Deaf and Hard of Hearing students for registered classes should be coordinated through a DRC Accessibility Advisor. Those semester requests can be submitted by students through Accommodate located in your MySLCC account. 

Students requiring ASL interpreting or real-time captioning for a meeting or school event request accommodations by completing the form below. Requests should be made a minimum of 2 school days before the event.

Employees requiring ADA accommodations (ASL interpreting and/or real-time captioning) should direct requests through Human Resources ADA Coordinator, Carol Odeleye, at 801-957-4722 or carol.odeleye@slcc.edu.

Employees may also fill out the form below. Employee requests should be made a minimum of 2 school days before the event/meeting.

Event planners requesting ASL interpreters or real-time captioning for

  • Division meetings
  • Conferences
  • Town halls
  • Other events

Please fill out the form below. Requests should be submitted 2 weeks in advance.  Any/all requests for captioning or ASL interpreting received by event hosts prior to the event should be submitted regardless of timeline and all reasonable efforts will be made to meet the needs of the attendee.

When planning an event at SLCC, please consult the Universal Access Event Guidelines.

All event advertising materials should include information for how attendees can request ADA accommodations.  Suggested verbiage: “Individuals who require ADA accommodations for this event should contact ____________ (event organizer name, phone, email) five business days before the event.”

Associated costs will be charged to the department sponsoring the event. All efforts will be made to utilize internal employees to minimize costs, however, if it is necessary to utilize a vendor the actual cost will be billed.  

Please note: autogenerated captioning may be utilized as a Universal Design measure. It is not to be used in place of an ADA accommodation request for real-time captioning or ASL interpreting. All requests for captioning and interpreting must be honored with live, real-time providers.
