Applying for Graduate School

Admission is a two-step process. Applicants must first meet the general requirements for graduate study as determined by the School of Graduate Studies and Research, and then the specific requirements of the Department of Biological Sciences, which are:

1. An undergraduate degree in biology or closely related field. Deficiencies in the student’s undergraduate training as determined by the Department of Biological Sciences at the time of admission to the program must be removed without graduate credit during the first year of graduate study.
2. Students must submit GRE scores for the general test.
3. International students for whom English is a second language must provide TOEFL scores to demonstrate English proficiency.
4. Students must arrange for a graduate faculty advisor in the Department of Biological Sciences to serve as their major advisor.

As you prepare an application, investigate which Biology faculty conduct research in your areas of interest. Prior to completing your application, contact prospective faculty advisors via email to ask if they are interested in taking new students. Students are seldom accepted into our graduate program without first connecting with a faculty member who is willing to take them on as a student.

New students are usually accepted for entry in the fall of our academic year (mid- September). Applications for fall quarter priority admission and assistantships are due by Feb. 1. Students are encouraged to complete their graduate program in two years (although many good students have continued into a third year).
