On behalf of the Student Financial Services (SFS) team, I want to take this opportunity to welcome our new students, and say welcome back to all our students at Gallaudet University. This 2021-2022 academic year, SFS will be working hard to engage with our students to make sure you have the support you need in financing your education.  We in SFS know that financing your education can be overwhelming as a college student, and I understand that it is a significant investment.  Student Financial Services is here to provide you with the support, tools, and information to make sure that you understand financial responsibility, and have a positive Gallaudet experience.  Our office also supports students in processing their third-party support such as Vocational Rehabilitation.

Our vision is that Gallaudet will deliver accurate, timely, clear concise, and accessible financial information, services, and guidance to students, their families, and constituents who support student success. We are committed to continuous improvement and will use data to inform our efforts to improve both the quality of our services, information and guidance, and the experience of those whom we serve.

I wish you all great success this academic year.


Dr. Crystal Harris

Director, SFS
