Semester Credit Hours

The unit of semester credit is defined as university-level credit that is awarded for completion of coursework, the transfer of coursework from another accredited institution, or the evaluation of college-level prior learning. One credit hour (at least 50 minutes) reflects an amount of work represented in the intended learning outcomes and verified by evidence of student achievement for these learning outcomes.  To meet the credit hour requirements, additional out of class hours will be required to complete these courses.  Visit Semester Credit Hour Policy for more information.

Transferring Credits

If you wish to transfer Gallaudet credits to your home institution, you must obtain approval from your home institution, prior to applying, to ensure that the credits will be accepted.

Types of Credits

Undergraduate credit courses do not have a PST prefix. and are numbered less than 700 level (ex: EDU 495). In general, these courses may be applied to Gallaudet University degrees or certificates. Graduate credit courses do not have a PST prefix and are 600 level and above (ex: EDU 795). In general, these courses may be applied to Gallaudet University graduate degrees or certificates. Professional Studies (PST) credit courses have a PST prefix (ex: PST 723) and may be considered as transferable credits to other institutions.

Professional Studies (PST) courses

Gallaudet University offers a wide range of courses that bear the prefix “PST”. PST courses carry university credit but credits earned are not applied toward a Gallaudet University degree.  These courses are designed at a reduced cost to offer educational and professional development opportunities for those who are not looking to pursue a degree program at Gallaudet. Often a PST course may be cross-listed with an undergraduate or graduate class and the class is made up of both sections. PST students will need to meet the same criteria for admission and completion.   Other universities and accrediting organizations may accept PST credits, but students wishing to transfer credits should check to determine the applicability of the coursework at their home institution. Some PST courses are offered as clusters that lead to professional certificates. A transcript showing both letter grades and credits earned is available upon request.


Students must submit a request to withdraw from a class in writing. Please note that there will be no refund of tuition and fees. You may send your request to  Contact here.
