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)GRE scores (ETS code is 6901)Official transcripts from all colleges and universities
attendedTOEFL scores (for international applicants only)
statement of your career goals and a listing of any scholastic honors, relevant
extracurricular activities, experience (teaching, research, etc.), and
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.
requirements for international students
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.
