EDA Developing Countries List

The tuition rate for international students reflects the 100% tuition surcharge as required by amendments to the Education of the Deaf Act. International students from developing countries will receive a 50% international tuition surcharge credit on their student bill.

An international student will retain the 50% developing country tuition surcharge credit as long as this student's enrollment status remains uninterrupted through the academic years.  This applies to when a country's status changes from developing to non-developing. A surcharge cannot be adjusted retroactively if the country's status changes from non-developing to developing.

For the purposes of determining the developing country surcharge reduction, Gallaudet will consider the applicant as enrolled on the date that the admission packet and Form I-20 or DS-2019 is mailed to the individual or the first day of classes, whichever is earlier.  The list of developing countries that is in effect on that earlier date (mailing or first day of classes) will be applied to that new international student.  This applies to new applicants and to students who move from ELI to undergraduate/graduate and from undergraduate to graduate programs.
