Sign Language Interpreters

Deaf or hard-of-hearing students may request interpreters for any of their classes. The request must be made at the time of registration. Assignment of interpreters will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Students are encouraged to register early due to a shortage of qualified interpreters.

All interpreters at Oxnard College have passed a screening exam and any hold certification from the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf. If you have any problems with interpreting services, please contact the Accommodations Specialist in the EAC.

Procedure for using this service:

  1. Contact the Accommodations Specialist in the EAC to discuss the classes you plan to take. Do this as early as possible! Call in June to register for fall classes; call in November to register for spring.
  2. See a counselor to discuss your class schedule and register for class.
  3. If you need an interpreter for other campus activities or for meetings with your instructor, please notify the Accommodations Specialist who will assign an interpreter.

Questions about ASL interpreting services should be directed to Candice Wittkins, Interpreter/Counseling Assistant.


Hot Tip : Pick up a copy of the Interpretation Services handbook. This will acquaint you with the policies for using the services. VERY IMPORTANT: If you will be absent from class, please call the EAC Office 24 hours in advance. We will notify the interpreter.
