Applications for fall 2019 are now open and will be due on January 15, 2019.

Our program begins accepting applications for the academic year in October of the preceding year. The application process is the same for all three degree tracks, as is the general deadline of January 15th. In order to ensure that your application is reviewed, please apply by this deadline and submit all additional materials (transcripts, letters of recommendation and GRE scores) as soon as possible after you submit your application, but no later than February 1st.  

We also offer a space-available deadline of June 1st for applicants who miss the general deadline, though their application is not guaranteed to be reviewed. Please contact a staff advisor before submitting an application to ensure that applications are still being reviewed. 

A holistic review of your application will be conducted by Materials Science and Engineering faculty members before an admission decision is made. Check out the following links for more information regarding applying: 

You will be notified of an admissions decision as early as mid-January (if all application materials have been received), but no later than mid-March. Waitlisted students will be notified of a decision on or before April 15th.
