The program provides students with an academic experience that is both challenging and rewarding. Our integrated program consists of learning that is integrated into both General Studies Honors and University Capstone Honors.
In General Studies Honors, students complete the university’s General Studies requirements through both designated Honors sections and Honors Option Contracts to fulfill their requirements in the program.
In University Capstone Honors, students complete Honors Option Contracts in upper-level courses and develop an in-depth, year-and-a-half-long research project for the Honors Capstone. The Capstone is the pinnacle of the Honors experience and is an invaluable piece of a student’s portfolio and provides a tangible example of the advanced skills they possess upon graduation.
Learn the skills and commitment it takes to become a leader in your community. There’s a reason Honors students have excelled as Student Body Government officials and NCAA Athletics captains.

The Honors Program uses a holistic admissions process, meaning we consider the whole person as we screen applicants. Several factors are considered, including high school or college GPA, ACT or SAT scores, a one-on-one interview, determination and grit, and materials submitted as part of the online application to Gallaudet.
Your application will be reviewed for Honors Program admission when you apply to the University. You also have the option of applying to the Honors Program once you are here! We recognize that intellectual flowering and motivation sometimes occurs after arriving here at Gallaudet.
We look for students who demonstrate intellectual motivation, dedication to a program of study, and critical thinking skills to engage and wrestle with texts and concepts in order to further their academic journeys in graduate school and life beyond the university.
Gallaudet University, chartered in 1864, is a private university for deaf and hard of hearing students.
