Graduate Special Students
Graduate special students are U.S. citizens or permanent residents who have earned a bachelor’s degree and wish to take graduate courses without pursuing a program leading to an advanced degree. Anyone wishing to register for a graduate class must apply and be accepted for graduate special student status.
New graduate special students are accepted year-round!
A bachelor’s degree with at least a B (3.0) cumulative grade point average is required for admission. To apply:
Spring 2022: Friday, January 1, 2021
Fall 2021: Friday, August 6, 2021
Graduate special students must satisfy course prerequisites and obtain permission prior to completing course registration. Enrollment in certain graduate courses is limited to degree-seeking students.
Admission as a graduate special student neither implies nor guarantees subsequent admission to any program at Gallaudet University. Interested students should check with the graduate program coordinator/director to determine whether courses taken as a graduate special student will be acceptable for the program and to learn about limits on the credits that can be applied to a degree program.
Graduate special students do not qualify for federal financial aid and typically are not eligible for financial support from Gallaudet University. However, Gallaudet employees and their eligible family members may qualify for the tuition waiver program.
Gallaudet’s International Special Student Program (ISSP) is offered to non-U.S. residents as a way to visit and study, without committing to a degree program.
