Before You Begin

Who should use this application

If you are applying to Gallaudet as a graduate student for the first time, please complete all parts of the application.

If you filed an application for graduate admission at Gallaudet within the last two years but did not enroll, contact the Graduate Enrollment Office and ask that your file be reactivated. You should also submit the application fee and any additional or updated information or records. If you are applying to a different program and want to use academic records or letters of recommendation previously submitted (within the last two years), submit a new application form and notify the Graduate Enrollment Office that you'd like to use the materials you submitted before.

You must meet all current deadlines and requirements. If you applied for admission more than two years ago, you must submit a new application, pay the application fee, and provide all required materials. (Files are destroyed after three semesters.)

Types of applications

The information presented here applies primarily students seeking graduate degrees at Gallaudet. Nevertheless, prospective students interested in taking courses at Gallaudet, but not in seeking admission to a degree program, will use this application and apply as a Special Student. Students interested in participating in one of Gallaudet’s Graduate Certificate programs will use this application and apply as a Certificate student.


Applications (and all required admissions materials) are due by February 15 for fall semester admission or November 15 for spring semester admission. PLEASE NOTE: Only a few programs offer spring admission. While many programs do not strictly adhere to the February 15th deadline, others have earlier deadlines. Please review the Graduate School Catalog for program-specific information.)
