Business Registration for new students occurs during Orientation Registration. During Business Registration, you either pay the full cost of the new semester (room & board, tuition, and other fees) or sign a promissory note. You are responsible for the balance of your student account.
The promissory note is a promise that you will pay off the total charges by the deadline. If payment is not made in full by the deadline, you cannot register for next semester's courses. The deadline for the fall semester is usually the end of October and for the spring semester usually in March. Please refer to the academic calendar for specific deadlines.
If you receive any VR assistance or financial aid, you will see credit adjustments posted to your account after the registration process is completed. Gallaudet must confirm that you are officially registered before processing any VR and financial aid documents. You may check your account balance throughout the semester on BISON. Please direct all billing questions to the Student Financial Services.
Information about financial aid, including a packet and an application, has already been mailed to you. If you have not received your packet, please contact the Office of Admissions. Additional information is posted on the Financial Aid website.
It is important that you submit your final and official high school transcript (or college, if transferring) to the Office of Admissions by August 30 if you are enrolling for the fall 2013 semester, or January 21 if you are enrolling for the spring 2014 semester. Financial aid awards will be cancelled if your final and official transcript is not on file with Admissions Office by then.
