CPCC’s articulation agreement with Gallaudet University not only addresses the national demand for more skilled interpreters, it also gives CPCC students an opportunity to transfer 100 percent of their academic credits to Gallaudet University, where they have the opportunity to live and study in a Deaf space with Deaf people. This special learning environment will equip CPCC’s graduates with the knowledge and skills needed to one day start their own businesses, work in a government setting and be successful in a variety of environments.

The bachelor’s degree students earn at Gallaudet University qualifies them to sit for the National Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID) Certification, the credential most sought after by employers, and qualify them for full licensure under North Carolina law. Currently, CPCC graduates may obtain provisional licensure. Earning the industry’s credential and licensure gives students the best opportunity to achieve success in this complex and ever-evolving profession.
