Interpreting, transliteration, transcription services, note-taking and assistive listening devices are all services that could be provided to accommodate deaf and hard of hearing students.
All services provided to deaf and hard of hearing UMBC students are coordinated through SDS’s Deaf & Hard of Hearing Services Coordinator, Michael Canale. For more information please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
UMBC’s Student Disability Services (SDS) is able to coordinate interpreters/transcribers and/or related services for deaf and hard of hearing individuals. A minimum of 2 business days are needed to fulfill interpreting requests. Please complete the Interpreter/Transcriber Form.
Campus visitors who need an interpreter or transcriber should make their request known to the department they will be visiting 2 weeks in advance. UMBC departments needing an interpreter or transcriber (or related services) should coordinate with SDS 2 weeks in advance but may contact the Deaf & Hard of Hearing Services Coordinator at any time during the semester when assistance is needed.
