The M.S. and Ph.D. degree programs in neuroscience require a minimum 3.0 undergraduate/graduate GPA, scores from the GRE general test, three letters of recommendation, and a personal statement indicating the applicant’s interests in neuroscience and career goals. A Masters degree is not required for admission to the Ph.D. program. Before beginning the program, an applicant is required to have completed a bachelor’s degree with preparation adequate to take graduate coursework in neuroscience, including sufficient undergraduate coursework in chemistry, math, biology, psychology and/or neuroscience. Applicants for the Ph.D. degree are preferred over the M.S. degree, given applications of roughly equivalent merit.
There are no minimum cutoff scores for the GRE exam, however, the GRE is considered as part of the admissions decision. Over the past several years, average scores of accepted students on the GRE have been above the 60th percentiles on both the verbal and quantitative sections of the GRE.
