Deaf, hard of hearing, or hearing students are welcome to apply for admission to the baccalaureate program at Gallaudet University.
Gallaudet recommends that high school students take as many college preparatory classes as possible, including English, social science, science, algebra, and geometry, and take the ACT or SAT during their sophomore, junior, or senior years. Admissions decisions are made using a holistic approach; prospective students are evaluated based on their academic, professional, and personal achievements, and their educational and career goals.
The Gallaudet University Office of Undergraduate Admissions leads and supports the University in meeting its undergraduate enrollment goals. It ensures the delivery of the university's quality, educational programs to deaf, hard of hearing and a limited number of hearing undergraduate (HUG) and Bachelor of Arts in Interpretation (BAI) students, by identifying prospective students, informing them, their families, and professionals working with them about the excellent educational and co-curricular programs at Gallaudet, by guiding these students through the application and admissions processes, and supporting their initial enrollment. The Gallaudet University Office of Undergraduate Admissions is committed to the recruitment and enrollment of a qualified and diverse group of students for the purpose of providing a quality collegiate education and providing preparation for careers, professions, participation as a global citizen, and for advanced graduate-level studies.
