Summary

This paper contains guidelines for administrators and faculty who will evaluate requests to provide recommended and appropriate accommodations to college students who are deaf or hard of hearing. It is also intended for advisers and parents who help such students prepare for college and for students who are seeking information about postsecondary education and accommodations. In planning for the provision of support services, college staff must focus on the individual whose communication style or language will have been determined by many variables. The paper introduces preferred terminology for describing people who are deaf or hard of hearing and discussed communication systems available for these students. The paper reviews campus programs overall and some specific federally funded programs for the deaf and hard of hearing. The institution's responsibility to provide services and the student's responsibility to request services are outlines. The types of support services commonly available are described, including those available for students who are deaf and blind. Suggestions are provided for students for applying to college and financing postsecondary education. Some specific advice is given for instructors, administrators, and staff. A list of 38 resource materials and organizations is attached. (SLD)
