The Financial Aid Office is primarily responsible for providing all information, services, and assembling financial resources that are available to and/or needed by students who are attending Gallaudet University in order to obtain an undergraduate or graduate degree. Financial aid resources are those that are provided by both internal (university and/or endowment funds), governmental (federal and state) and private agencies or organizations. The Financial Aid Office will provide the highest quality of services and offer as many opportunities for financial aid as possible, in combination with resources expected from student, family, state Vocational Rehabilitation offices, and other sources, to support an eligible student in completion of a degree at Gallaudet University.
The Financial Aid Office (FAO) is an integral part of and partner in carrying out and actualizing Gallaudet University's overall purpose and strategic planning. Gallaudet University has a unique purpose in providing educational, social, cultural, and personal development programs to Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and Deaf Blind undergraduate students, as well as specialized graduate training programs for both hearing and Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and Deaf Blind individuals seeking to establish careers in the broader field of deafness. With this purpose in mind, Gallaudet University will continue to promote various scholarship, loan, and employment opportunities for students who meet qualification standards for these funds. The fundamental purpose of the financial aid program at Gallaudet is to make college education possible for students who might otherwise be deprived of this higher education opportunity due to inadequate funds and /or previous limited educational opportunities; to support the recognition of high academic and co-curricular achievement through administration of merit based awards; and to seek and support funding sources to provide financial support for Gallaudet University students.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
