Apply as a First-Year Student

Applying for a Merit Scholarship

Complete the Gallaudet undergraduate application form and submit all required materials by the priority deadline of February 15 for optimal consideration for Honors scholarships. Applications received or completed after the priority deadline will be considered for admission, although scholarship funds may not be available. Learn more about the Honors Program here.

All newly admitted students are automatically considered for other merit scholarships at the time of acceptance.

Applying for Financial Aid

The financial aid process is a separate process from applying for admission.

Complete the FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1. The priority filing date is June 1. You must complete the financial aid process even if you are also completing the Vocational Rehabilitation funding process. To see if you are eligible for VR, contact your state VR agency as early as your freshman year of high school.
