On Campus ASL-English Interpretation
You can major in Community or Educational Interpreting. The on campus American Sign Language-English Interpretation (ASLEI) program offers a traditional college experience on UNC's campus in Greeley, CO. You will learn face-to-face with students and faculty as well as engage with the UNC community.
The ASLEI program is also offered online through UNC's Extended Campus.
The Department of ASL & Interpreting Studies was awarded a five year grant (2015-2020) from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) to establish the Preparation for Interpreters in Educational Settings (#H325K150213).
Between 2015-2020, up to 30 qualifying students will be awarded a two-year scholarship (~$28,000) which:
- Provides an educational stipend for tuition and associated educational expenses, and
- Covers the cost of taking a national exam (RID or EIPA) within one year of graduation.
The OSEP scholarship will be offered to qualifying students who declares the Educational Interpreting major and are beginning their upper division coursework (Year 3 and 4).
The grant is awarded through a competitive process and requires a four-year service obligation with an IDEA-eligible student(s) in exchange for the OSEP sponsorship. If you are awarded the scholarship and do not (a) complete the bachelor's degree within the two years of sponsorship or (b) provide four years of service to an IDEA eligible student(s), you must repay all the OSEP monies expended on your education to date.
