Matriculating Students (Students for consideration for CRTP, MSCR & PhD in clinical Research)
Applications and supporting documentation are reviewed throughout the year for admission to the upcoming Fall Term. Matriculation at other times during Spring I and Spring II is possible with the permission of the Program Director only for the CRTP and MSCR programs. PhD applicants, who, on the basis of their submitted application materials, are being seriously considered for the Program, may be invited for interviews. The requirement for these interviews may be exchanged for a telephone interview, if geographical considerations are overwhelming. The Admissions Committee of the Graduate School will consider all the data on each applicant before making its decision. Applicants should submit all materials in the checklist below. The Application Process should be completed online at the Programs Website as follows:
- Completed online Application Form:
