A. Please check the Graduate Admissions page. You should find answers to your questions by following the links from this page.
Graduate Studies has an on-line application process.
A. Although there are no hard deadlines for domestic applicants, international application materials should be received in our office (not postmarked) by:
February 1 for Fall semester admission
October 1 for Spring semester admission
A. Unfortunately not at this time. The system that is in place does not allow for this at this time. Updates and improvements will allow for this in the future. At this time the EECS department is not acknowledging on-line applications until the supplemental material arrives. When you receive an acknowledgement that we have received your application that means we have the complete application.
A. The University requires a score of 577 for the written test or 90 for the internet based test. We also accept an IELTS score of 7.0 or above. The TOEFL requirement is waived for applicants who have received a degree form an institution within the U.S or other approved English speaking International institutions.
A. There is no set minimum score required by our department. The requirement is that all incoming students must take this test excluding students applying for the combined B.S./M.S. program. B.S./M.S. students must submit GRE scores if they are applying to the Ph.D. program.
A. Each program has a slightly different minimum, but in general it is around 3.2.
A. If your country uses a percentage system please convert that score for the GPA. To convert your percentage score to a GPA using this formula:
4 x <your percent score> / 85 = GPA
It is still better to put in the percentage than leave the GPA blank.
A. Yes, the admissions committee can review your application with the score copies. However you will not receive a letter of admission from the Graduate Studies department until we receive your official scores through the ETS database.
A. Yes. However, your I-20 will not be processed until the financial statement is received by International Student Services. If there is a problem with the information this will just further delay you papers. It is better to send them early.
A. No. There is no official form. All you need is a bank statement stating the amount of support, who the support is from, and a verification from the bank that the money is there. This is a standard support statement.
A. You can submit the letters either way. Some feel it is more convenient to have the letters sent electronically. That is why we have it set up that way. We are trying to make the process as easy as possible.
A. To select Computer Science you must choose Computer Science (CS). To Select Computer Engineering you would select (ECM). Keep in mind these are two totally different disciplines and the applications are reviewed by different committees Choosing the correct discipline is extremely important.
A. Sorry, but all the TA positions are filled by our Ph.D. students. All of our Ph.D. students are required to teach three classes to receive their degree.
A. This is one of the main purposes of our website. We, the faculty and staff, have taken great efforts to put all the need information on-line to make it convenient for you to find everything you need. Please see home.
