Online Surveys

NDC Values Information From the Community

The data we collect helps us develop products and services that meet your needs, and improve access for deaf students in transition settings and beyond! Help us achieve our goals by participating in one of the following surveys:

2022-2023 Deaf Student Postsecondary Access and Inclusion Survey

We bet you face frustrations as a deaf college student on campus. Lack of access. Not enough inclusion. These are common issues but each experience is different, and these experiences matter to us. Share your experience and tell us about your school. You will be able to help improve the college experience for other deaf students!  

If you’re a deaf student currently taking classes at any kind of college, take this survey today and help improve college access! This survey should only take 15 minutes to complete.

Exploring the Interpreter Shortage in Postsecondary Education Settings

In the early days of the pandemic, deaf college students reported having difficulty getting the accommodations they needed to access online classes. Nearly 3 years after the first stay-at-home orders, problems with recruiting and scheduling interpreters have persisted. To learn more about this issue, the National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes is conducting a research survey exploring the interpreter shortage in any type of postsecondary setting (e.g., 2- or 4-year college/university, Adult Education & Continuing Education Programs, Career & Technical Education Programs).


Please take this survey if you are..

  • An interpreter who has worked in a postsecondary setting
  • A currently enrolled deaf college student using interpreting services, or
  • An interpreter scheduler that schedules jobs for postsecondary classes

Coordinating Disability Services for Deaf Students in Postsecondary Settings

Disability service coordinators play an important role in ensuring access for deaf students (including deafblind, deafdisabled, and hard of hearing) to stay on track and successfully complete their program. We invite you to share your experiences providing services to deaf students. Data from this survey will serve as an update from our previous findings and allow us to identify further areas of improvement in facilitating deaf postsecondary success.

Thank you for participating!
