  • Captioned videos/media in the classroom
  • FM Systems


Students may also request interpreting/captioning services for activities related to their instructional classes and for other De Anza programs.

Special Requests are made in advance to DHHS so scheduling may be planned. 


Requests may be made for activities, such as:


  • One-on-one instructor meetings/ conferences
  • counselor meetings
  • tutoring sessions
  • Financial Aid appointments
  • appointments for other campus service programs
  • required course activities
