What documents must be submitted with the application?

  • The official Graduate School Application, which can be filled out online.
  • Three letters of recommendation from professional references, which can be submitted online. We prefer that these letters come from chemistry faculty who have been your instructor or research mentor, or from supervisors in chemistry-related jobs.
  • A statement of purpose outlining why you want to go to graduate school, and what you career goals are.
  • Official transcripts from all college level institutions you’ve attended, whether or not a degree was earned.
  • Official GRE scores.
  • Official TOEFL scores, if required.
  • Application fee. This fee will be paid for all domestic applicants once your application is complete. You do not need to send the fee to the graduate school. International students will need to provide the application fee, however.
