Graduate School Application Information


Go to Application Form

The faculty in the program to which you apply evaluate your application and make a recommendation to the Graduate School regarding admission. The final decision is made by the Dean.  The Graduate School reserves the right to admit or deny admission whenever it believes that it has sufficient evidence to do so.

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 (, 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.
