Doctoral Prospective Students


All Ph.D. application materials must be received by the Neuroscience Graduate Program by December 15th.  Applications are reviewed as they are received; therefore, applicants are encouraged to submit all required materials as early as possible.  Applications arriving after this date will be considered by the admissions committee only if positions remain available.

Application Requirements

Students who wish to be admitted to the Neuroscience Doctoral Program should apply online. The program will not consider any student for admission until all the following documents have been uploaded into the online application system:

  • Application form (must be submitted online)
  • A statement of purpose (must be submitted online)
  • Three letters of recommendation (must be submitted online)
  • An unofficial copy of all post-secondary academic transcripts (must be submitted online)

Note: All transcripts and other documents and material required for application for admission become the property of the Neuroscience Graduate Program and are not returnable either in original or photocopied form.

Non-Native English Speakers

Because TOEFL and IELTS are not required, 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 (no exceptions).
