Disability Support Services (DSS) will coordinate real time captioning for students with a documented disability who have been approved for this academic adjustment by the DSS Coordinator.

The following identifies the responsibilities of the student and DSS if the student chooses to utilize real time captioning:

Responsibilities: Student
