Students who complete the A.S. degree may be prepared to take the Educational Interpreter Performance Assessment (EIPA) and the National Interpreter Certification (NIC) Knowledge Exam upon graduation. Students who complete the A.S. degree and an additional bridge of 15 credits in general education are eligible for the 2+2 articulation with the University of North Florida’s B.S. in ASL/English Interpreting. The A.S. degree also satisfies the prerequisite courses for several other bachelor’s programs in interpreting both in and out of state. Students who have earned a bachelor’s degree prior to, or in conjunction with the A.S. degree may also be prepared to take the National Interpreter Certification (NIC) Interview and Performance Exam upon graduation.
