I am a Deaf or hard of hearing student. What services are available to me?
The Kent SAS office coordinates American Sign Language interpreters and Real-time transcribing services for all Kent State University campuses. Interpreting, real-time transcribing, priority registration, note taking assistance, FM units, and closed-captioning are some of the accommodations students use. The SAS staff and students will work closely to determine and maximize the benefit of these accommodations.
Prospective and new students meeting with Admissions, advisors, and/or attending Destination Kent State should request interpreting or real-time transcribing services with those departments when you schedule your appointment. SAS will coordinate the accommodations once we are notified. While we will do our best to accommodation every request, a two-week notice is requested.
