Life at Gallaudet
Why Gallaudet University
That’s our motto, and it’s a big part of how Gallaudet University has become the world leader in liberal education and career development for deaf and hard of hearing students.
You’ll join new signers, international signers, native signers, and more in the Gallaudet community. One of our proudest achievements is the continued expansion of our community. With our immersive ASL and English environment and introductory JumpStart ASL program, you don’t need to be an expert–just be you.
Gallaudet is home to world-class professors, researchers, and instructors. The best part? Our students get to work right alongside them. With a 8:1 faculty to student ratio, our professors aren’t overwhelmed by overpacked classrooms, and our students get the kind of one-on-one instruction that fosters authentic learning. So whether you’re attending class or assisting on a university research project, there’s no limit to what you’ll accomplish here.
Gallaudet University is among the nation’s “Best Value Schools” according to U.S. News and World Report.
When you’re at Gallaudet, you’re not just getting a great value, but as you’ll come to find out, you’re getting the best education too! With financial aid opportunities like scholarships, grants, student employment, and more, our Financial Aid experts are ready to help you find the best way to make college affordable.
