Applications for Admission

Admission to the graduate programs in the School of Science and Engineering is highly selective and competitive.

Applicants to the masters and Ph.D. programs should submit official test scores for the GRE using school code 6173.  This code should also be used by international applicants submitting the TOEFL.

Individual program requirements vary.  Please consult individual program websites for details of admission requirements.  Individual graduate programs act in an advisory capacity by reviewing applications and making recommendations on admission to the Dean of the School of Science and Engineering.  Authority to admit students to graduate programs in Science and Engineering rests with the Dean of the School.
