  • Courses

    By completing ASL courses, you will develop your communicative and cultural competence of American Sign Language and the Deaf community.

    ASL Courses:

    • ASL 101: American Sign Language I on-campus or online.
    • ASL 102: American Sign Language II on-campus or online.
    • ASL 201: American Sign Language III on-campus or online.
    • ASL 202: American Sign Language IV on-campus or online.

    NOTE: ASL I-IV are sequential courses, and thus, each course builds upon the previous course. Therefore, ASL I-IV must be completed in order and not simultaneously with another ASL I-IV course.

    Course Descriptions for ASL Courses

    Exciting news starting Fall 2020 semester!  ASL I & II will be offered online.  Check out more information below: 

    Your placement within the sequential ASL courses depends on your background:

    If you have no prior experience with ASL, you would start at ASL I.

    If you have taken ASL courses at another college or university and the courses are on your transcript(s), you would start at the next level.  If these courses are more than one (1) year ago, it is recommended that you take the ASL I-IV screening to make certain you are placed in an appropriate level ASL course. 

    If you've taken ASL in high school or have life experiences, you may qualify for retro-credit, please schedule a screening for placement into the appropriate ASL course with Kate Beilmann at Kate.Beilmann@unco.edu

    The ASL I-IV screening is conducted online and has a fee of twenty-five ($25) dollars.
