Limited English Proficiency Plan

Salt Lake Community College (“SLCC”) takes reasonable steps to ensure limited English proficiency (“LEP”) populations have meaningful access to its programs and activities. Whether particular barriers need to be removed for an LEP individual is determined on a case-by-case basis. Should the need arise and upon request by an LEP individual, SLCC may provide LEP individuals with assistance through language translation or interpretive services, so long as the assistance does not unreasonably interfere with academic standards or create an undue burden on the College’s available resources and costs.

As a recipient of federal financial assistance, SLCC or is required to provide meaningful access to all programs and benefits to limited English proficiency (“LEP”) individuals. The U.S. Department of Justice defines LEP individuals as: “Persons who do not speak English as their primary language and who have a limited ability to read, speak, write, or understand English.”

SLCC’s LEP plan is prepared in accordance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and its implementing regulations. This plan is available to the College community through the Office of Equal Employment Opportunity’s website.

When higher concentrations of LEP individuals are present within the College community, as determined by U.S. Census data and enrollment figures, this plan may be updated.
