Students must consult with their assigned major advisor each semester prior to registering. The importance of the program advisor cannot be overstated. Program advisement includes all aspects of students' present and future academic and professional planning. It is often the program advisor who is able to help students conceptualize their academic program within the context of their own professional goals and aspirations. This responsibility is likely to involve extensive discussions of academic or professional goals well beyond the program.
The program consists of two parts:
- Liberal Arts Core (LAC) Credits
- Required Major Credits
The ASL-English interpretation (ASLEI) baccalaureate degree program is delivered in two ways: a traditional undergraduate offering on the Greeley campus and an online program with summer onsite requirements. The ASLEI program prepares majors to provide competent interpreting services between individuals who are deaf and use ASL as their primary language and individuals who are not deaf and do not know ASL. Graduates of this program will be prepared to interpret in a range of low-risk settings with professional autonomy and be work- and/or certification-ready. The ASLEI program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Interpreter Education and it is the only distance-delivered interpreter education program in the nation to have achieved this distinction.
The educational interpreting emphasis focuses on working in school settings with students who are deaf and hard of hearing. These include academic K-12 settings as well as extracurricular activities afforded to students..
