Applicants who have received a Degree from outside of Gallaudet and are seeking a Second Degree at Gallaudet

Applicants in this category have B.A., B.S., or higher degrees from accredited colleges or universities other than Gallaudet, and have never attended Gallaudet but want to get second degree at Gallaudet.

Applicants seeking a second degree must meet all of the requirements for undergraduate admissions, include their official college transcripts with their application, and meet the department's admissions requirements.  A letter of acceptance from the department's chairperson should be included in the application.  Test scores and high school transcripts do not need to be submitted.  Applicants are also waived from English and math placement testing.
