We can’t commit to a specific timeframe for welcoming international students back to campus.  While everyone seeks to return to face-to-face campus life and interaction, the health and safety of the community must always take precedence. International students also need to monitor the policies of their home countries as well as the United States.  ISSS will monitor, counsel, and refer to other resources as warranted. Contact International Student and Scholar Services via ISSS@gallaudet.edu.

Last Update | August 19, 2020
