Application Materials

  • GRE General and Subject test scores will not be required for 2023 admission. Submission of GRE test scores, if available, is optional.
  • International applicants must submit satisfactory scores on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or International English Language Testing System (IELTS). TOEFL/IELTS scores are waived for students who obtained, or are in the process of completing, an undergraduate/graduate degree in the United States or an English-speaking program which will provide a medium of instruction certificate.
  • An application fee of $70 USD or a fee waiver from the School of Graduate Studies is required before any application is reviewed. If your fee waiver request is denied, you may request reconsideration by the department by writing to the email address above explaining the reason for seeking a waiver and providing any relevant documentation.
