Academics

All students who leave the University on academic probation or suspension or with disciplinary concerns must apply for readmission. Their cases will be taken before the Faculty-Student Affairs Committee to determine their eligibility to return to the University.

It is strongly recommended that students on academic suspension take a full-time academic load (12 hours or more) at another institution and achieve a 2.5 or above GPA on those hours. Failure to take classes away from Gallaudet may result in being denied readmission.

The information below is a guide to preparing and completing your readmission undergraduate application. If you have any questions, feel free to ask us!

Before Applying

  • Clear all debts before the application deadline.

How to Apply

  • Submit the Undergraduate Readmission Application Online (Academically Suspended or Academically Dismissed)
  • Submit two letters of recommendation from teachers, counselors, advisors, employers, or community leaders. Letters will not be accepted from family members or friends
  • Submit official college transcripts from all schools attended since leaving Gallaudet
  • Submit a statement clarifying your academic history and explaining your purpose for readmission. The statement must be specific and should include the following:
    • The reason you wish to return to Gallaudet
    • What you’ve done while you’ve been away from Gallaudet (attended another university, worked full time, etc)
    • An explanation of how you plan to achieve academic success if readmitted to Gallaudet
    • If applicable, the circumstances that led to your poor performance in the semester(s) you attended Gallaudet University (grades of “D” or “F” in all courses)
The Faculty-Student Affairs Committee will consider your statement in making their decision about your eligibility to return to the University. Failure to include a full explanation of any of the items listed above may affect the outcome of the committee’s decision. Due to the Faculty-Student Affairs Committee meeting schedule, application deadlines will be enforced.
