Gallaudet University Graduate Reviews

My program is extremely intensive (pros and cons) and you come out ready to jump into an externship. Financial aid, however, does not actually get deposited on the scheduled disbursement date. Instead, students typically do not receive financial aid available above tuition and fees for at least 4 weeks following the start of the semester. While the bookstore allows you to purchase books on credit up to $1000, students should not depend on the financial aid disbursement for any other expenses they may have (rent, food, etc.) at the beginning of each semester.

Try to live off-campus if possible. Many students end up moving after a semester of living on campus due to the mice infestation. Instead of getting rid of the mice, traps are set out, and you can hear them scratching inside the walls (if you happen to be a hearing student).

In the Masters for Public Administration program at Gallaudet. I currently have a 3.871 GPA going into my second year. The entire department has been very supportive accommodating and continuously challenges me to do my best. I am a dual impaired two sport (football and track and field) college athlete that has transitioned into the graduate Masters of Public Administration program. It has been very well presented, interesting and challenging. I cant speak highly enough of Department Chair Dr. David Penna for his guidance, mentorship and classes. I am also interning for Congressman John Rutherford on Capital Hill as part of the program through the fall.
I love Gallaudet University because of it where I feel home and bond with my Deaf community. Everyone use American Sign Language (ASL) easy to communicate with each other and it accessible. I would like to see improving cafeteria food and maybe build or fix dorm.
