Saint Leo University provides a wide variety of services for students who are deaf or hard of hearing. All supports are unique to individual students and their needs; however, common examples may include:
Communication Access Real-time Translation (CART)
Note taking supports
Receiving Non-Academic Accommodations
Saint Leo University is committed to ensuring all students have appropriate access to every experience the University has to offer. Students who register with the Office of Accessibility Services can have their Letters of Accommodations emailed directly to their professors through the AIM Portal; however, students should also plan ahead if those accommodations are needed for other campus events. Students who require supports such as CART or interpreting services for commencement, mass, or any other Saint Leo sponsored activity should contact the Office of Accessibility Services in advance so appropriate supports can be arranged.
Special Note for Students Who Are Deaf or Hard of Hearing
Although all students with disabilities should be proactive in registering for their accommodations in advance, this is especially important for students who are deaf or hard of hearing since certain types of equipment, services, and personnel may take extra planning for the University to procure. Registering early and collaborating with the Office of Accessibility Services is an essential part of ensuring accommodations are provided in a timely manner.
