The rehabilitation services program trains graduates to work in human service agencies that serve people who have disabilities, are homeless, are involved in the court system, use assistive technology, and in a variety of other circumstances. Some common entry points are in case management, employment services, assistive technologies, court systems, and social services. The program also prepares students for graduate study in rehabilitation counseling or related fields. Curriculum flexibility attracts students who are interested in developing a program to reflect their special interests.
For admission to the program, students must have completed 24 college credit hours and have earned a 2.35 GPA. Students must earn a minimum C grade in each professional rehabilitation course requirement. All students must complete a 400-clock-hour internship. Prerequisites for the internship include an overall 2.5 GPA, plus completion of all General Education and rehabilitation courses necessary for preparing the student to complete the field experience.

Sign Language Interpreting
The College of Education and the Department of Human Services in the College of Education and Human Services offer a Bachelor of Science in Sign Language Interpreting (SLI), designed for students who have completed an associate's degree in sign language interpreting or the equivalent.
Today's interpreters work with a variety of deaf consumers: those who acquired American Sign Language (ASL) as their first language, those who communicate through a form of visual English, and those who use a contact variety form of English and ASL. Interpreters also work with a variety of hearing consumers: from those who are familiar with American deaf culture and the process of interpreting, to those who are communicating with a deaf person for the first time.
In this program, students will complete 60 quarter hours of professional requirements and about 44 quarter hours of general education courses beyond the associate's degree.
