Registration Information

How to Register

Applicants must be at least 16 years of age and possess a high school diploma or GED equivalent to take PST prefixed courses. Graduate-level courses require completion of an undergraduate degree. A copy of your BA/BS transcript must accompany your registration. Senior high school students may be eligible to take PST prefixed courses with written recommendation of their high school academic advisor and permission of the instructor. Non U.S. citizens, including green card holders, MUST follow the procedures outlined under International Students.

CCS expects members of the University community, including PST registrants, to be honest and professional in all of their dealings with the institution.  CCS adheres to the academic integrity policies for undergraduate students, if the PST course is not cross-listed with either an undergraduate or graduate level course. If the PST course is cross listed, then the undergraduate or graduate level academic integrity policies apply.

For information on tuition and fees, see the section on Financial Information.

Gallaudet University Employees

A regular status staff employee must satisfactorily complete the initial probationary period before the employee or eligible family member may enroll in the course for which tuition waiver is being requested. (This requirement does not apply to sign language classes for employees.) A regular status faculty member or teacher may enroll and apply for tuition waiver following the effective date of employment. Part-time employees and their family members are eligible to apply for tuition waiver for one course per semester only.

Employees and their eligible family members who have tuition waived are not eligible for University sponsored financial aid programs designed to supplement tuition and lab fees.

Applicants must satisfy the admissions requirements and adhere to all registration guidelines. Registration officials within the University determine the availability of space within the class following admission of tuition-paying students.
