Applying to Gallaudet University’s Graduate School

Questions about the admissions process? Before you apply, review application procedures, requirements, and contact information on this site:
Graduate Application: Forms & Instructions.
- Apply using the secure Online Graduate Application Form by first reading the Online Graduate Application Instructions.
[We encourage you to apply for graduate admission online. It's a quick and easy way to provide us with your basic information.]
- Apply using the printable PDF Graduate Application Form and mailing in the completed form.
[If you prefer to complete the forms in our paper application, download the PDF application form, complete it and mail it to the Graduate Enrollment Office.]
Please review the Application Checklist prior to submitting your application to ensure you have completed all forms and gathered all required material.
Review & Notification
Most departments will review applications only after they have received all required materials. If your file is not complete at the time that the department conducts its review, your application may not be considered. It is your responsibility to make sure that the necessary documents and test scores have been sent to the Graduate Enrollment Office.
- Application Status: The Graduate Enrollment staff will inform you when your application is received and which materials, if any, are still needed. They will also notify you when your completed application is forwarded for faculty review. Until you are informed that your application is complete, it isn't. Making sure it is complete before the deadline is your responsibility. Please contact Graduate Admissions if you have questions about which items are still missing from your file.
After your application is complete, please contact the department directly with questions about the review progress or process. (When a departmental recommendation is made to the Dean, she will inform you by letter.)
- Offer of Admission: The department will make a detailed review and an initial recommendation to admit. However, only a written notice from the Dean of the Graduate School and Professional Programs constitutes an offer of admission, not correspondence with the department or with an individual faculty member. Applicants who are not offered admission will also be notified by the Dean as decisions are made.
After you've reviewed all of the information above, proceed to the secure Online Graduate Application Form by first reading the Online Graduate Application Instructions.
