New Signers Program Application

Submissions for this form are closed.

The New Signers Program (NSP) is an optional two-week, pre-orientation program for students with little or no prior skills in American Sign Language. In addition to learning introductory signing skills, students become more familiar with Deaf culture and deaf awareness.

You are not accepted into the program until we receive and review your application and we send you an official acceptance letter. This is when you will know you're officially an NSP participant.

The fee for participation in the program is $700. If accepted to the program, the program fee will be reflected on the student's fall bill. Scholarships are available for students with financial need. If VR is covering the program fee, authorizations should be faxed to 585-475-7850 or mailed to:
