All applicants meeting the minimum requirements of The Graduate School will be considered for acceptance. Each applicant is considered individually and acceptance into the program depends a great deal on the background and interest of the applicant and our ability to provide a quality program in the area of interest.

Applicants need a strong academic background with undergraduate course preparation in biology, chemistry and mathematics. Students accepted into the program should have an appropriate degree (i.e., in a STEM discipline) from an accredited institution and a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. Applicants with lesser qualifications will be accepted only on the recommendation of a graduate faculty member who is willing to serve as the research advisor for the student and with the approval of our graduate faculty body.

Many of the requirements for students in our program are identical to the Graduate School requirements as stated in The Graduate School BULLETIN available online at

February 1st is the deadline for application to the
