English Language Institute Admissions

The English Language Institute (ELI) provides comprehensive immersion programs in English as a Second Language to international as well as a few American students. American Sign Language (ASL) and cultural studies courses are also offered, enabling students to gain proficiency in English and ASL in order to qualify for, and thrive after, admission to Gallaudet or other U.S. universities. You may apply to the English Language Institute if you are international; deaf or hard of hearing; at least 18 years of age; and have completed a secondary school program. Applicants who are under 18 years old will be considered if they have completed a secondary school program.

Please note that admission to the ELI does not constitute admission to the undergraduate or graduate programs at Gallaudet University.

Detailed information, admissions procedures, and requirements for the ELI program are available at:
