Graduate Admissions

Admissions and Application Requirements

An applicant must have completed the baccalaureate degree or its equivalent prior to matriculation. The strength of an applicant's academic background and evidence of promise in graduate study is more important than the area of undergraduate study. If an individual has not been exposed to some background material, the student will be encouraged to correct these deficiencies during his or her first year in the program. Applicants must submit the following materials for completion of the application:

  1. A completed application form, including a concise statement of previous research experience and of research interests.
  2. A copy of college transcripts from previous academic institutions.  An unofficial copy may be used for initial submission, but an official copy will be required if an offer of admission is made.
  3. Three letters of recommendation from persons having knowledge of the training and experience of the applicant. These letters should be uploaded via the link above.  Instructions are available on the page after you sign in.
  4. A nonrefundable application fee of $25.

Note that the GRE is no longer required for admission to the program.
