How do I apply to the Graduate School?
By far the easiest way to apply to graduate school is to fill out our online application. Your information will be saved as you go. While we prefer that you use our Online Application form, we also have a "paper and pencil" Application Booklet available. Graduate Special Students also should use this form (either online or printed) and complete the section of the form that pertains to Graduate Special Students.
Note: If you currently have access to Gallaudet's Bison system (bison.gallaudet.edu), go to "Self Service" and then to "Admissions, Create/Edit GRAD Online Apps" to reach the online application pages. All others should click the "Online Application form" link above.
