Application Status

Receipt of Application Materials

Log into your online application to see which of your letters of recommendation, transcripts, and exam scores have been received by our Graduate Admissions office. Please allow up to 1 week after the submission of your application for GRE and TOEFL scores to be paired with your application. We regret that application materials cannot be returned or transferred to another institution.


Applicants in the U.S. and Canada who are considered for admission will be invited for all-expenses paid on-campus interviews taking place in February. The interview schedule for 2018 is as follows: 

February 2nd - 4th: CBB, MCGD, MMPP Tracks

February 9th - 11th: BQBS, Microbiology, Neuroscience Tracks

February 16th - 18th: Immunology, MCGD, and PMB Tracks

Invitations to attend our recruiting weekends will be made by phone or email beginning in early January. International applicants who are considered for admission will be interviewed by phone in February and March.

Notification of Decisions

Admissions decisions are communicated in written form by the Graduate School, not by the BBS Program. Only communications sent directly from the Graduate School may be considered official notifications of admission or of financial aid decisions. Depending on the BBS Track to which you applied, decisions will arrive any time between January and March.
