International Special Student Program (ISSP)

Note - Applications for the 2015-2016 year are due April 30, 2015

The International Special Student Program (ISSP) is a tremendous learning experience designed for non-U.S. students who are not pursuing an academic degree at Gallaudet University. The one- or two-semester program is customized to meet the needs of each scholar, allowing them to gain practical knowledge for personal enrichment and to share when they return home. While at Gallaudet they can audit courses, be exposed to what is happening on campus, and visit schools, organizations, and agencies.

There are great opportunities to do intensive data collection at Gallaudet to acquire specific information and skills relating to deafness. Many students from around the world with a professional interest in the education of deaf and hard of hearing people, their language, and their history and culture find the ISSP ideal for their learning needs.

Courses may be audited or taken for college credit. Each student will be assigned a mentor who is an expert in the particular area the student wishes to learn about. Research Support and International Affairs welcomes your application to the ISSP program. We encourage you to take the time necessary to make sure that the documents in the link are a complete and fair representation of your goals and interests. Our staff is available to assist you throughout the application process. We hope you will soon join our proud and strong community of excellence.
