Senior Year Residence

To graduate from Gallaudet, students are expected to be "in residence" for at least 24 credits once they have achieved senior status. This means that, once students have completed 90 credit hours, they must take at least 24 more credit hours at Gallaudet, not transferred from another university. For the purposes of this residency requirement, courses taken through the Consortium of Universities and Colleges of the Washington Metro Area (CUWMA) and the Online Consortium of Independent Colleges and Universities (OCICU) are considered Gallaudet courses.

To earn a major, students must complete at least half of the major requirements at Gallaudet. To earn a minor, students must also complete at least half of the minor requirements at Gallaudet. Additional general studies courses may be required to satisfy Gallaudet University degree requirements.  Note that some departments may have additional residency requirements for their majors.
