The Department of American Sign Language and Interpreter Training work closely with students to ensure they have access to college and department information that will allow them to navigate successfully through their journey to graduation at San Antonio College.

For students enrolling in the program, the first step is to declare their major. Students may do this at Admissions and Records (Fletcher Administration Center Room 216). The major code for Interpreting students is 1508 and for DSS students is 1527. Once a student has declared their major, they will follow the degree plan of that year.

Interpreting and Deaf Support Specialist students are assigned an advisor when they enter the program.

First year students are required to meet with MS. Jo Hilton department counselor or  Department Chair Lauri Metcalf before registering . It is important to meet early with your advisor in order to ensure availability in desired classes.

Students enrolling in department classes who are transfer students, or have prior signing experience are encouraged to meet with the Department Chair prior to registration. The Department Chair is the person who will be able to make decisions regarding the acceptance of signing/interpreting experience or placement after completion of the in house challenge exam. If you have not taken a sign class in the last 3 years you will need to take an inhouse placement exam before registering for an American Sign Language class.
