Look under the heading "Unique Aspects."

It's only an associates degree but it will get you started.

pulled it off the RID website, but I haven't researched it. https://www.rid.org/acct-app/index.c...ion=search.ITP

I am curious, does anyone know about the quality of these or other online interpreter programs? I am trying to find a way to work an ITP around my teaching schedule, so a full-time program isn't an option, although I will be able to take one semester of leave if I need to, and can do more during summers. I want to do this, but can't really quit my job to go back to school full-time. I already have a graduate degree, so I don't need to worry about getting a full undergrad degree for licensing, I can do just the interpreter program, but would like to be able to go for full national certification when I am done, if that would be possible.

I am basically fluent in ASL, so if the program is a little weak on language development, that is okay. I have a good mind for grammar/language, and I hang around enough Deaf people, terps, and other signers that I can practice outside of the program too.

Any advice you can give would be welcome!

Try Troy University. (Troy University) You pay instate tuition, it is a BA and fully online. You just have to pass at an intermediate plus level on the assessment test done from NTID to start the ITP major. I got in in a week. It has been rad. I start in August.
There's a pretty difficult internship/practicum which you have to set up, they will not connect you with mentors, but Im really looking forward to it.

Hope that helps!
