New Student Orientation (NSO) is a week-long transition program intended to help newcomers, including first-year and transfer students, prepare for the start of their journey at Gallaudet University.
During NSO you will have time to meet your academic and career advisors, become familiar with Gallaudet University resources, and get a head start on meeting your classmates.
If your first written language is not English, you can prepare for college admission through the English Language Institute. International deaf and hard of hearing students can apply to Gallaudet through ELI, an intensive English program runs throughout the academic year and will prepare you for personal and professional success.
When you succeed, we all succeed. Our Academic Advising staff works with each student individually to help them develop an academic plan to stay on track to graduation.
The Career Center staff helps students set career goals, discover what majors and experiences will take them where they want to be, and find ideal internship and employment opportunities.
Peer mentors provide one-on-one mentoring for all first-year students , connecting you to the campus community and helping you discover everything that Gallaudet and Washington, D.C. has to offer.
With our faculty to student ratio of 8:1, our students already benefit from an individualized classroom experience. On top of that our faculty is here for you outside of the classroom– via VideoPhone, Facetime, Zoom, or Face-to Face during their office hours and tutoring sessions.
