Graduate Program in Neuroscience

International Students

International applicants have a deadline of November 1, 2017 considered for Autumn 2018 admission.

An international student is anyone who IS NOT a U.S. citizen and does not hold a U.S. Permanent Resident Visa (i.e., “Green Card or Immigrant”).

International applicants are those who currently hold or expect U.S. visas.  This includes holders of H1-B, J-1 exchange visitors or any other non-immigrant classifications (e.g., DACA).

Graduate School English Language Proficiency requirements can be found at Understanding the Application Process.

The Program expects each international applicant to

  • Find a Neuroscience Graduate Program faculty mentor who is willing to commit financial support for the student.
  • Obtain support before the deadline date of November 1st.
  • Letter of support must be presented with the application.

International students will not be admitted to the program unless a letter of support is obtained.

Typically successful international applicants begin this process during the year prior to applying to our program.

  • A letter from the faculty mentor stating his or her willingness to support the student should be submitted along with the general application.
