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 select a track below 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.
