IPP Program Application

If you are interested in the Interpreter Preparation Program contact the ASL office at 602.285.7190 or Advising at 602.285.7777.

First, it is important to define the application process.

If you are interested in taking classes at Phoenix College, no application is necessary. You simply need to register for classes, either on-line or in person, which is unlike 4-year institutions. This is because we are a community college, therefore it is NOT necessary to apply and receive acceptance in order to begin taking our American Sign Language (course prefix SLG) classes.

This application process is only for Phoenix College SLG students who have completed the pre-requisite Sign Language Communication Pre-Employment Certificate (major CCL 5333) or the Sign Language Communication Deaf Studies Certificate (CL 5333) and are interested in entering the Interpreter Preparation Program. Pick up an application from the ASL-IPP Office.

Do you meet the pre-requisites? Apply to receive your CCL5333 by the Spring semester deadline (usually in early March) in Admissions and Records (AR building).

You must apply for the Certificate of Completion in Sign Language Communication Pre-Employment or Deaf Studies (CCL5333), or you are NOT eligible to apply to the IPP level coursework.

IPP applications are available starting February 1st and are due the Friday before spring break.
