Student Responsibilities

If students will be absent or late they are to contact the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services

Students can contact the coordinator directly by email at jpatterson@rrc.ca.

Students are responsible for the following:

  • Find a classmate to take notes during lectures so that focusing on the interpreters is easier. Carbon paper is available
  • Direct any questions about course content to your instructors
  • Request copies of lecture notes, handouts, or overheads from your instructors
  • Book or cancel a class, tutor session, meeting, presentation or other activities.
  • Inform Deaf & Hard of Hearing Services of any absence such as illness or an appointment
  • Book interpreters or note takers for activities outside of your regular schedule 48 hours in advance of the date needed to ensure service.
  • Become familiar with the role of the ASL-English interpreter or computerized note takers and how to use services
