Request an ASL Interpreter

All Clemson University sponsored events open to the public that do not require registration should provide ASL interpreter(s). As a best practice, it is encouraged that all Clemson University sponsored events provide ASL interpreter(s).

We recommend placing your request at least 5 business days prior to your event to allow adequate time to clarify details with you, communicate with our vendors, and secure services. If your request is placed less than 5 business days prior to your event, it may be difficult to fill your request. However, our office will work diligently to fill your request regardless of when it is received. For the best experience, ASL service providers may ask for presentation notes ahead of time.

Please note: A cost may be associated with your request. If the event you are planning (whether on campus or off campus) involves conducting University business (i.e. University/departmental meetings, retreats) and the attendance of someone who needs an ASL interpreter is requested / required, the costs for ASL interpreters can be covered by the University. For all other events (workshops, webinars, conferences, special programs, etc.), the organizers are responsible for covering the costs of ASL interpreters. Please consider costs for ASL interpreters as you develop your event budget. If you have budgetary concerns related to providing ASL Interpreters for your event, please contact Priscilla Harrison, Director of Accessibility Services and Compliance/ADA Coordinator at 864-656-0620 or to discuss additional opportunities for support for your event.
