Deaf or Hard of Hearing Students:How to Get Started

Set up Interpreter and CART provider services

The first step is to set up an initial Intake Meeting with the Coordinator of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services. This meeting can be in-person, through an online video conference platform, videophone, video relay service, or tele-relay service.

Email aslods@bu.edu to set up this meeting.

Please create a new student through the online intake form in advance of the meeting.

Once you have been approved for accommodations, a formal letter is sent to your Academic Dean. Your Dean will review the accommodations to make sure all fit within the academic standards of your school. Once they approve this accommodation, in most cases, you are all set until graduation.
