Interpreting Services Office (ISO)
At SDCCD, the Interpreting Services Office (ISO) provides communication access accommodations for deaf and hard-of-hearing students with a documented disability.

The Interpreting Services Office, in conjunction with Disability Support Programs and Services (DSPS), provides services in State-supported activities and classes, and related academic requirements that are directly related to the student's educational process.
Typically, the deaf or hard-of-hearing students meet with the campus DSPS counselor to determine the appropriate communication access accommodations and the service requests are then handled by the Interpreting Services Office. Contact the DSPS Office on campus and request an appointment with a counselor to get started.
