Admission Requirements

The applicant should have a bachelor's degree in

  • Biochemistry
  • Molecular Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Biophysics
  • Or related fields

Applicants are urged to take the general aptitude and advanced sections of the Graduate Record Examination.

Please be advised that in the case of applications from outside of the United States, we require that a recent TOEFL score be included with the application (a minimum score of 570 is needed in order to be considered for admission as a regular graduate student.) In addition, the University now requires that non-native English speakers pass the Test of Spoken English (TSE) as a graduation requirement. 

To assure consideration for admission in the fall, applications should be received by January 1 to be considered for recruitment in February and March.
