Interpreting/TypeWell

To receive classroom interpreting or TypeWell services, students must also:

  1. Be on time for classes. Interpreters/transcriptionists will wait 15 minutes before leaving the classroom if student is not present.


  2. If a student misses three consecutive classes without informing DS, the interpreter may receive another assignment. A meeting may be requested by a staff member in DS to discuss the student's situation.


  3. Report all schedule changes or cancellations to DS in a timely manner in order for interpreter and transcriptionist assignments to be adjusted.


  4. If interpreter/transcriptionist is absent, student should notify DS immediately at (567) 661-7007 or via email at disability@owens.edu. Emergency contacts and numbers will be provided to students for those situations when the DS office is closed.

For Interpreting Requests outside of regularly scheduled classroom times:
  1. Complete an Interpreter Request form (pdf) and return it to DS at least 3 days prior to the event. These requests can include meetings with faculty, tutoring sessions, field trips, and other campus related activities.
