Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences
Thank you for your interest in the Rowan University Graduate
School of Biomedical Sciences. Please note that an application for admission
and general information regarding our programs
and research opportunities is available on this
web site. Please feel free to contact us if you
have any specific questions.
An additional resource for international students is the Rowan University International Center webpage: http://www.rowan.edu/colleges/chss/departments/internationalcenter.
IMPORTANT NOTE TO INTERNATIONAL
The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences
receives about 50 applications annually from foreign
countries. Since our entering PhD class consists of
only about 5-8 students each year, competition for
these places forces us to be highly selective in
our admission criteria. Therefore, we are unlikely
to admit foreign applicants with verbal and math
scores of less than 150 and 155, respectively, on
the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), and 93 on the iBT TOEFL. GRE scores must be taken within 5 years of the semester and TOEFL or IELTS scores must be taken within 2 years of the semester in which the student will matriculate. In addition, we look for
a demonstration of interest and experience in basic
research, especially in areas that compliment the
research interests of our faculty.
For general information on becoming a student the United States of America, please go to the link for the EducationUSA webpage:
Once on the page, select "EducationUSA Advising Centers" on the left. The map will help you locate a Center worldwide where you can take the GRE (General test only) and the TOEFL, both required for entry into any of our programs. Our school code is 2610. The network is affiliated with the U.S. Department of State so it should provide many answers to your general questions about becoming a student in the United States of America.
If you wish to apply for admission, submit a
completed application and arrange for the required
documents to be forwarded to the Graduate School.
Please note that the $65 application fee must
be received before your application will be considered.
We cannot preview your credentials or indicate
the likelihood of acceptance prior to receipt
of the application fee.
Please note, that international students are discouraged from applying for the Master of Science in Molecular Pathology and Immunology program
unless you own an automobile and have a valid USA driver's license because the campuses for this program are separated in such a way that there is no public transportation to each location.
If you will receive your Baccalaureate degree
later than June, do not apply for the coming fall
semester. No visa form will be sent until you
have been accepted by the Graduate School and
we receive evidence that the degree has been awarded.
The application fee is NOT REFUNDABLE. Consider
your credentials carefully before applying.
