Requirements for Admission

The Neuroscience Graduate Program does not have specific entrance requirements, although the Admissions Committee considers several variables. GRE scores are not required, but may be reported if desired. We do not have a minimum GPA; however, students with GPAs less than 3.0 require exceptional letters and an additional statement explaining their GPA.  Indeed, letters of recommendation from advisors or colleagues who know the applicant in a research environment, not just a class environment, are the most important factors we consider. Finally, we encourage applicants from all science majors and actively seek diverse scientific backgrounds among our entering students.

Specific information regarding GPA, GRE and TOEFL scores can be found on the page listing the School of Medicine Graduate Studies requirements for admission.
