The South Carolina Educational Interpreting Center (SCEIC) is proud to continue its partnership between Clemson University and the South Carolina Department of Education from 2021-2026!  In an effort to pursue our vision for every Deaf student to have equitable access to the entire school experience through highly qualified educational interpreters, the SCEIC officially launched in 2016 and is pleased to be able to continue to offer national testing, professional development, mentoring, and technical assistance. 
In keeping with its mission to equip educational interpreters with the means to improve their interpreting skill set, the South Carolina Educational Interpreting Center will provide:

  • educational interpreting skills assessment
  • educational interpreting knowledge assessment
  • targeted professional development opportunities
  • diagnostic and mentoring services
  • general support and advocacy on behalf of educational interpreters and Deaf students
"The Office of Special Education Services at the South Carolina Department of Education is excited to continue our partnership with the Interpreting Center.  This ensures that all students who are deaf  have equitable access to the school setting, including instruction as well as extracurricular services, through highly qualified educational interpreters."
