If you answered 'YES' to all the questions above, then you're in luck! Gallaudet University offers the ACT on campus. Here's your opportunity to get a head start on the Gallaudet undergraduate application process.
The ACT is comprised of 75 English questions, 60 math questions, 40 reading questions, and 40 science questions.
The Gallaudet University Admissions Office accepts ACT scores for undergraduate applications. ACT sessions are administered by a Gallaudet official/test coordinator on campus. Resulting test scores are valid for consideration by the Office of Admissions at Gallaudet only. Results of ACT tests administered at Gallaudet cannot be used for admission consideration by other universities/colleges. This restriction is according to the ACT HQ rules for residual test sites, such as Gallaudet University. If you plan to transfer at least 30 credits from another college, you may not need to take the ACT. Please consult with your admissions counselor to confirm whether this situation applies to you. Please note that residual testing scores from our test sessions are not accepted for NCAA initial eligibility.
For COVID-19 Assessment of Health: Gallaudet University is closely monitoring the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. To take the ACT on campus, you must go through the following steps:

*Anyone coming into Washington, D.C. from a high-risk state (within the prior 14 days) who was traveling for non-essential activities will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days from their arrival in the District. Individuals traveling from high-risk states after essential travel or arriving in the District for essential travel are required to self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days and, if they show signs or experience symptoms of COVID-19, they are to self-quarantine and seek medical advice or testing. If you have taken the ACT test through Gallaudet's On-Campus (Residual) testing within the last 60 days and try to take it again, your scores will be cancelled and your fee will not be refunded. You must have started or completed an application to Gallaudet University or be currently enrolled at Gallaudet University to take part of this On-Campus (Residual) testing.
