Information for Applicants
The following materials must be submitted in order to be considered for admissions to the IBS Graduate Program:
Three letters of recommendation (there is no form for this). Letters can be emailed from the letter writer to firstname.lastname@example.org
GRE scores (ETS code is 6901)
Official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended
TOEFL scores (for international applicants only)
A statement of your career goals and a listing of any scholastic honors, relevant extracurricular activities, experience (teaching, research, etc.), and publications. This can also be emailed to email@example.com.
We have no application fee.
Students qualified for admission should have a sound background in science that includes courses in inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, physics and biology. A record of broad training in all these areas is obviously beneficial; however, students lacking training in an area can defray that deficiency by demonstrating advanced coursework in other disciplines of science.
The Graduate School requires a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 2.70 (A=4.0) or better on all undergraduate coursework attempted at a regionally accredited institution of higher education for admission. Also required is a score acceptable to the program on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). All international students, including resident and non-resident aliens, whose native language is not English and who do not have a bachelor’s or master’s degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution, are required to achieve a minimum score of 550 on the paper based written TOEFL. A minimum score of 213 is required on the computer-based version of the exam.
Please submit the above application materials to:
