Specific Requirements for Biology Department Applicants
In addition to the completed application form and three letters of
reference, applicants must provide an official copy of scores for
the Graduate Record Exam (GRE). Foreign students must provide an
official copy of scores for the Test of English as a Foreign
Language (TOEFL). Applicants are also encouraged, although not
required, to provide test scores for the Biology subject GRE exam.
The deadline for Fall admission applications (Ph.D., Thesis MS and course work MS)
is December 15. The Spring deadline (only course work MS students accepted) is October 15.
Students admitted to the Ph.D. and to the research M.S. program
options generally receive tuition scholarships. Course work M.S.
students must pay their own tuition. All students pay health service
and other fees and must be covered by health insurance. Students who
are U.S. citizens, or foreign students who reside in the U.S. and
are fluent in English, are eligible for paid teaching assistantships
that will support living expenses. Students admitted from foreign
countries are not usually eligible for paid teaching assistantships
until the second year, and must provide evidence of independent
support of living expenses for the first year.
