Financial Aid

All students accepted unconditionally into the Biomedical Sciences Ph.D. program will receive a full tuition scholarship and a research stipend. The research stipend is pegged to the National Institutes of Health, National Research Service Award.


Admission requirements for the Biomedical Sciences graduate program, the parent program that includes the MMI Track, are

  *AN EARNED DEGREE:  Baccalaureate or professional doctoral degree granted by an accredited college or university.

  *GPA: A 3.0 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) from the institution granting the baccalaureate.  For an applicant to be considered for "Regular" admission, they must submit official transcripts confirming their degree with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better.  An applicant whose GPA is below 3.0 may be considered for "Conditional" admission.  Other criteria affecting status of admission (i.e. Regular; Conditional), are program-specific.

  *GRE/MCAT:  The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is required for all applicants to the Biomedical Sciences program and its four tracks.  For MD/PhD and  MD/MS dual degree applicants, GRE scores are strongly recommended, but MCAT scores may be accepted in lieu of GRE scores.  For the general GRE examination, applicants should have a combined score of 1100 for the verbal and quantitative parts and a score of 4 or higher in the analytical/writing part.

  *LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION:  Three or more Letters of Recommendation are required addressed to the College of Graduate Studies Health Science Campus Admissions office.
