Our international admissions counselor will be here to assist you throughout the application progress. If you have questions, please feel free to email email@example.com.
The application requirements for degree-seeking international students are:
*Official transcript(s) will be required following acceptance to the University. We accept both paper and electronic transcripts. If you have your transcript sent electronically, it should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you earned college credits during high school, please send in your college transcript(s) for transfer credit evaluation. Please ensure that the transcripts are translated into English before sending.
†Gallaudet admits students based on superscores for both the ACT and SAT, which has been recognized as best practice. Research conducted by the ACT has confirmed that superscores are just as strong a predicator, if not stronger, of how students will perform at the collegiate level than other scoring methods. Superscoring takes the highest scores for each section across multiple SAT or ACT tests and section retests, resulting in a “super” composite score that will, in most cases, be higher than the composite score of any individual test taken. To learn more, visit the ACT website.
International applicants do not qualify for financial aid or merit-based scholarships.
