Sign Language Interpretation


  • Although located on the Fayette campus, the office services all UIU students (centers, online, self-paced).
  • Students may complete the Application for Accommodation online or complete and submit a paper application.

Upper Iowa University contracts with licensed interpreters to provide communication access university-wide for students who are deaf/hard of hearing. We contract with interpreters that value the rights of deaf/hard of hearing students and support students in reaching their full potential. All interpreters meet the requirements of the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID).

Please note the following:

  • Interpreting Services may be scheduled for classes, meetings, peer tutoring, and other UIU sponsored events.
  • UIU does not have any interpreters on staff at this time. We contract with a third party agency and assign interpreters based on availability and student need.
