The Gallaudet University General Studies curriculum of integrated studies focuses on Student Learning Outcomes (SLO) and will not generally have course equivalencies from other institutions. For that reason, we have established a system that will enable transfer students to benefit from the integrated studies program and still complete their degree requirements in a timely fashion.
