The Department encourages prospective students with an interest in any area of chemistry to apply for admission to our graduate program. A basic requirement is a bachelor's degree in chemistry or biochemistry, though rare exceptions may be made for closely related degrees. An undergraduate GPA of at least 3.0 is required. The GRE is required of all applicants, but the chemistry subject exam is optional. GRE scores of successful applicants are typically > 50 percentile, especially in the quantitative score. International applicants should have TOEFL scores of at least 90.
Applications are accepted at any time, but for full consideration applications should be complete by February (for fall or summer applicants) or September (for spring applicants).
