Application materials include:

  • Academic transcripts
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • Statement of Purpose
  • Resume/CV
  • Scores from the GRE General Test are required. The GRE Chemistry Subject Test is recommended.

All application materials should be received by December 15, 2020 to ensure full consideration by the Graduate Admissions Committee (GAC).  Nevertheless, the GAC will commence meeting in early December, so submission of materials earlier than the deadline is encouraged.
