Campus Interpreter Requests

Faculty, staff, and our Kent community can request interpreting services for events by completing our online request form.

Please familiarize yourself with the information below. The interpreting policies are consistent with the interpreting field. 

SAS will look at the length and complexity of the assignment and determine the number of interpreters needed to ensure top-quality interpretation for deaf and hard of hearing clients and to maintain the occupational safety standards of our interpreters.

SAS provides highly skilled, certified,  and experienced interpreters.
