Admissions Requirements

Graduates of accredited colleges or universities with an earned baccalaureate degree are eligible for admission to the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences provided that the minimum academic requirements of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and of the program are met, and the program admissions committee determines that individuals show a commitment to a program of graduate studies and a likelihood for success in these studies.

The applicant should:

  • Have overall grade point average (GPA) of B (3.0 on a 4.0 scale) or greater and a B average in science and math for related degree programs
  • Submit official Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores for the General Test that includes verbal, quantitative, and analytical writing
  • Provide letters of recommendation and required forms from appropriate individuals
  • Submit a carefully constructed personal statement describing the applicant’s career goals and reasons for interest in graduate school.

Other indicators of a commitment to a graduate program are carefully weighed in the admissions process. These may include participation in research, particularly mentored research programs, and related professional and life experiences.

Individual programs may have more stringent requirements than those of the Graduate School. Applicants with an earned PhD, MD or JD may seek a waiver for the GRE score requirement from the Dean.
