Academics
Areas of Study

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.
