International Applicants

There is not a specific number of spaces reserved by the Genetics Graduate Program for non-US citizens. All qualified international applicants are welcome to apply.

Undergraduate degrees must be granted by four-year programs.

International applicants are required to electronically submit scores for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) exam. This exam must be taken within 24 months of the beginning of the term for which you are applying. Competitive applicants will have a comprehensive score of at least 100 and have scored above 25 on the Speaking portion of the exam. Applicants who are citizens of, or who have earned a degree in these countries are exempt from the TOEFL exam requirement.

Because we are a publicly-funded institution, it is not customary that international students are offered financial support, however, there are a limited number of teaching or research assistantships. For information on the independent financial support regulations required of all international applicants, please visit the site for the Office of International Services
