How do I submit an application? Application to our program is made online through the School of Graduate Studies
at ETSU. Please notify our office (e-mail email@example.com or call 423-439-2031) when you submit your application materials to the School of
Graduate Studies. To submit an application please follow the instructions on the
School of Graduate Studies application website.
What materials do I need to submit? In addition to the application form, you will need to submit transcripts (undergraduate
and any graduate studies), letters of reference and scores for the GRE exam. International
students also need to submit scores for the TOEFL exam. Be sure to complete the personal
essay included in the application.
Is the GRE examination required? Yes. Our program and the School of Graduate Studies requires official scores for
the GRE exam.
Is there a minimum score requirement for the GRE exam? Our admissions committee does not set a minimum score for the GRE exam. The exam
is just one of many factors that the committee considers. Studies have shown the exam
is not, in itself, a strong predictor of success in graduate school.
What is the deadline for submitting an application? Although there is no firm deadline for applications to the Biomedical Science Graduate
Program, most of the positions for Fall admission will be filled early in the Spring
semester. We advise all students who are considering applying to our program to submit
materials before March 1st.
For what semester of entry are applications accepted? Under most circumstances, students are admitted only for the Fall semester.
How do I inquire about the status of my application? Contact the School of Graduate Studies regarding the receipt and processing of application
materials. Rickie Carter, Graduate Program Specialist (423-439-6165, firstname.lastname@example.org) processes all applications for the Biomedical Science program. Feel free to contact
our office (e-mail email@example.com or call 423-439-2031) for any questions you have about the program or the status
of your application.
Is a formal interview required? Well qualified applicants who reside in the United States will usually be invited
to visit us. During the visit, applicants have an opportunity to tour the research facilities
and to meet with students and faculty. Applicants will also meet with one or two members
of the admissions committee.
How do I apply for financial aid? All applicants are considered for financial support. Most students who are admitted
to the program will be offered support through a research assistantship that includes
payment of tuition and fees and a competitive stipend.
