Admission and Testing Information:

Admission to the graduate programs in the School of Science and Engineering is highly selective and competitive.

Before you start your application, you will need:

  • Student copy of transcript (*with Bachelor's degree posted if available)
  • Student copy of GRE Scores
  • Name and email address of at least 3 people for letters of recommendation
  • For all International students - Please have either a student copy of the TOEFL/IELTS Scores or a letter from your current school stating you are proficient in the English language.

For most programs, prospective graduate students must take the General Test of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Exceptions to this policy include some 4+1 MS programs (open only to Tulane students) and the MS in Cell & Molecular Biology (which also accepts MCAT).  All Masters and Ph.D. applicants should request that ETS send their official test scores to school code 6173 (Tulane University School of Science and Engineering).  

International applicants must also demonstrate English proficiency, typically established through the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Official test scores for the TOEFL use the school code 6173. The School may waive these tests for students who earned bachelor's degrees at universities whose courses are taught in English.

TOEFL minimum score - 90
IELTS minimum score - 7.0

All international students who are accepted into a School of Science and Engineering PhD program must complete an online summer ESL Evaluation Course during the month of July.  The 10 hours (2 week) assessment course will determine which students must take additional ESL courses during their first year of graduate studies.

Individual program requirements vary. Please consult individual program websites for details of admission requirements. Each graduate program has their own committee for reviewing applications and making recommendations on admission to the Dean of the School of Science and Engineering. Authority to admit students to graduate programs in Science and Engineering is Joseph L. Bull - Associate Dean for Research, Faculty Affairs and Graduate Studies.

* Please note that upon admission into the School of Science and Engineering Graduate program, you must submit your official test scores and transcripts to the Tulane School of Science and Engineering prior to the first day of class.
