Students may also fulfill the Puget Sound Language Graduation Requirement through testing in American Sign Language through the ASLPI. Students testing in American Sign Language must also allow sufficient time for scheduling the testing interview.

Students will be informed of their test results via e-mail, as will their advisor and the Registrar's Office.
