About Us
JumpStart at Gallaudet University is about challenge, discovery and new friends! It is a four-week summer program for first year and transfer students to help them get off to a good foundational start before the fall semester begins.

JumpStart provides two tracks for deaf/hard of hearing and hearing students. Deaf/hard of hearing students will go into the American Sign Language (ASL) track and hearing interpreting students will go into the Bachelor of Arts in Interpretation (BAI) track. Please do select and explore our tracks for more information. 

There is a $425 program fee, but no room and board charges. Student Success, in collaboration with Student Affairs and Academic Support units, oversees the JumpStart program.
