Undergraduate Open Houses

Undergraduate prospects, join us for an Open House, where you will meet other deaf and hard-of-hearing high school or transfer students interested in Gallaudet. Our full-day program introduces you to all aspects of being a student at Gallaudet, and aims to ensure you leave with everything you need to know to come onto campus as a student!

In addition to everything the Open House offers, our Office of Career Success offers the opportunity to take the ACT test on campus the day after the Open House.

If coming to campus isn’t a possibility, we will have online sessions throughout the year with panels of experts prepared to answer your questions; from what our five schools are like to answering any and all financial aid questions.
