The Honors Program provides a comprehensive education for students enrolled at Gallaudet. Students may apply for Honors before their first semester, or at a later date when they feel ready. To accommodate the needs of our students, we have two tracks available to students who are admitted to Honors. The first track is General Studies Honors, which is geared towards students in their first and second years of college. The second track is University Honors, which is geared towards students in their third and fourth years. Both tracks provide students with an exemplary education and maximize student opportunities after graduation. On the left side of your screen you will see three sub-tabs for General Studies Honors, Capstone Honors, and Honors Option Contracts.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
