ASL I and II are offered (during the summer session only) as credit courses by the Department of Rehabilitation Psychology and Special Education.

ASL may be accepted to meet the foreign language requirement for admission, if it is taken through the student's school and is reflected on an official transcript. With prior approval from an academic advisor, students may be approved to take ASL courses elsewhere and transfer credits. 

Madison Area Technical College offers beginning, intermediate and advanced American Sign Language non-credit courses.
