Application for the cellular and molecular biology (CMB) program may be submitted at any time; however, full-time admission to the program will be granted for the fall term only.
Candidates for admission to the CMB program are expected to have a bachelor’s degree in biology, chemistry or a related discipline with a cumulative GPA of 3.0.
The undergraduate coursework should have included general biology, advanced biology electives, general chemistry and organic chemistry. It also recommended that applicants have taken introductory statistics, calculus, molecular biology and biochemistry.
Students who do not hold a bachelor’s degree in an appropriate field or who lack the minimum program prerequisite requirements may be provisionally accepted to the program. Students receiving provisional acceptance must complete the requirements stipulated at the beginning of the program. Upon completion of the provisional requirements, the student’s record will be evaluated for full admission. In addition, provisionally accepted students may be prevented from enrolling in certain specific graduate courses until prerequisites are met, as determined by the program coordinator.
