Sign Language Interpreters

DMACC employs licensed staff interpreters to provide communication access district-wide for students who are deaf/hard of hearing. DMACC's interpreters value the rights of deaf/hard of hearing students, meet the requirements of the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID), and support students in reaching their full potential.

Interpreting Services may be scheduled for classes, meetings, peer tutoring, homework help in the Academic Achievement Center, and other DMACC-sponsored events.
