Procedures & Policies for ASL Interpreting Services

Happy PCCC student

All eligible students must request interpreting services in advance. This will give the ODS adequate time to locate a qualified interpreter. If you know you will be missing a class, you must contact the ODS staff/and your interpreter directly a minimum of 24 hours PRIOR TO CLASS TIME to adequately notify us that you will not attend class.
