Requests for accommodations should be made through the student’s DAS Online Services account.
Advertisements for an event should list a contact person to whom requests for accommodations can be made. If no such information is provided, interpreters can be requested through the student’s DAS Online Services account. Students, staff & faculty can request an interpreter for a non-class event using the Custom Request form.
A minimum of 48 hours advance notice is requested; one week advance notice is preferred. Please do not make requests directly to interpreters. Interpreters must have prior approval from DAS before accepting assignments.
