Non-Degree Special Student
Hearing, deaf, and hard-of-hearing students who are not currently enrolled at another university and do not wish to work toward a degree may apply as non-degree special students. Application for undergraduate non-degree special status must be made each semester. Non-degree special students are not limited in the number of semesters they may attend Gallaudet. If special students later wish to apply for admission to the undergraduate program, they must satisfy the requirements for undergraduate admission. All classroom instruction is conducted in ASL. Therefore, non-degree special students are required to have a working knowledge of ASL.
