Applying as a current GU student
Students who are currently enrolled in Gallaudet University are also invited to apply to the Honors Program! Students may apply to participate in either General Studies Honors or Capstone Honors. Students applying from within the University often have established solid, professional relationships with their professors. Because Honors is about maximizing each student's potential to thrive in their professions, experience at other Universities, Internships, near-professional research activities, or professional employment all spark interest in Honors. To reflect the different nature of these admits, our admissions process for current students is different than for incoming students.
How to Apply
- Express interest to the Honors Coordinator to plan for their admissions portfolio.
- Submit two letters of recommendations from Gallaudet University faculty. (Students may also submit an additional letter of recommendation from an individual outside the university to support their application.)
- Submit a writing sample written within the past year.
- Interview with the Honors Director.
