How to Apply

Atrium ReceptionApplications are invited from individuals holding Baccalaureate or Master’s degrees with strong backgrounds in the physical and life sciences. Completed applications must include all undergraduate and graduate transcripts, three letters of recommendation, GRE scores, and a statement describing the individual’s scientific interests and professional goals. The program requires a minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.0/4.0.  The average GPA for current graduate students in the Environmental and Molecular Toxicology program is 3.3  and the average percentile score for the Quantitative GRE scores is the 70th percentile.  Although the GRE is required, applications are looked at on a holistic basis. We recognize GRE test scores are not the only indication of academic potential and we consider many factors in our application review process.  International students whose primary language is not English must submit TOEFL scores.

If you’re interested in our graduate program, we encourage you to let us know by giving us your name and contact information. You are welcome to arrange a visit with us to tour our facility and talk with students and faculty. For additional information please contact the Director of Graduate Programs.
