Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program (DHH)

The Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program(DHH)  provides services for Deaf and hard of hearing students on all campus locations of Santa Rosa Junior College. Deaf and hard of hearing students receive a full range of accommodations to assist them in achieving their academic and personal goals.

Accommodations include: interpreting, captioning, note-taking, assistive listening devices, and testing accommodations. Additionally, students have access to the various services available to all students, including transfer assistance, vocation counseling and tutoring.

Many students participate in extracurricular activities, such as playing on sports teams, attending SRJC cultural events and joining campus clubs. The Disability Resources Department faculty, staff and interpreters strive to provide access and support so that all Deaf and hard of hearing students can be successful.
