All applications are submitted to the GST program via the Graduate School’s electronic application portal. To apply to GST, please choose ‘Life Sciences’ as the Major. Applications received by January 15th are eligible for an application fee waiver!
The application requires curriculum vitae, 1-2 page statement of purpose, transcripts, GRE scores (general test) and TOEFL scores (if applicable). Three letters of recommendation are also required. References are to be from professionals qualified to evaluate your scientific and academic background. Applicants should submit the names, titles, and contact information for individuals who will provide references, and those individuals will be contacted by the university’s ADMIT program directly. We welcome informal inquiries. We are also interested in learning how you learned about GST, and you will receive a brief questionnaire asking how you learned about our program after your initial application.
The target date for applications is January 15. Note that GST emphasizes PhD level training. It is uncommon for students to be admitted into the M.S. track.
The deadline for international applicants is February 1. Graduate Admissions will accept copies of transcripts for initial evaluation but requires original transcripts prior to formal admission.
