After initial screening of applications by the School of Biomedical Engineering faculty, candidates for our M.S. and Ph.D. programs will be invited to campus to interview for admission.

Graduate Interview Days for 2018 have not yet been scheduled, but will likely occur the first week in March 2018. This event provides an opportunity for candidates to tour campus, meet current and other prospective students, visit with faculty, and learn more about the program.

For full consideration into any of the School of Biomedical Engineering graduate programs, applicants must have completed Calculus 1, 2, and 3, Physics 1 and 2 (calculus-base preferred), Ordinary Differential Equations, a semester of Life Science, and have a GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. An applicant may be conditionally admitted if missing only one of the prerequisite courses listed above (and must complete that course the first semester in the program).

 


HOW TO APPLY

Graduate Application Checklist and MEO Application Checklist

To apply for admission, applicants must:

(1) complete the online application;

(2) submit supporting documents including (a) professional resume or vita, (b) statement of purpose, and (c) three letters of recommendation (letters may also be sent to the Office of Admissions by your recommender);

(3) pay the $60 application fee;

(4) contact your previous institution(s) to request your official transcripts be sent to Colorado State University (use institution code 4075);

(5) contact the testing agency to request your graduate record exam scores (all 3 sections: verbal, quantitative, and analytical) be sent to Colorado State University (use institution code 4075). It generally takes 3-6 weeks for ETS to get the scores to CSU, so allow plenty of time. Photocopies will not be accepted. Visit ETS for more information.

DO NOT SEND APPLICATION MATERIALS TO THE SCHOOL OF BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING, AS IT WILL DELAY YOUR APPLICATION.

NOTE: There is no separate application for graduate research assistantships. Applicants are automatically considered for funding.

 

International applicants must also submit the following two items:
Test of English as Foreign Language (TOEFL) Score; contact the testing agency to request that scores be sent to Colorado State University (use institution code 4075). Photocopies will not be accepted. It generally takes 3 – 6 weeks for ETS to get the scores to CSU, so allow plenty of time.

Immigration Document Request Form; contact the International Programs Office for more information.
