Vernon College is committed to providing timely and efficient interpreter services. The Office for Students with Disabilities (OSD) with handles all requests for interpreter services.
Interpreter services for academic classes, career and technical classes, and continuing education classes are provided by Vernon College and facilitated through the OSD. Students are responsible for initiating the request for interpreter services. At least two weeks’ notice is needed so that arrangements for interpreter services can be made in a timely manner. Requests that are made on short notice may result in no interpreters being available due to conflicts in interpreter schedules.
Documentation may be required to prove the need for interpreter services if the student does not appear in person to make the request.
Every effort is made to provide the student with a qualified interpreter; however, students may not necessarily receive the interpreter of their choice. Interpreters are assigned by the OSD in order to best utilize the interpreters’ skills, maximize their working time while allowing ample resting time, and to assure that the student has the opportunity to ask questions of the instructor immediately preceding or following the class.
For further information, or to request interpreter services, please contact the Office for Students with Disabilities on the Vernon Campus.
