How to apply to a GSAS master's program
Please refer to the GSAS Application Resource Center for complete admission application requirements. Though requirements may vary by department, GSAS considers carefully an applicant's academic record of achievement, scores on the required Graduate Record Exam (GRE), recommendations, and research goals. Also important is the demonstrated ability to deal successfully with the rigors of a master's program and contribute to a vibrant intellectual community. GSAS's Application Resource Center is available to provide information and guidance on the admissions process.
(Please note: The GSAS application requirements for this program are the same as for all other applicants, including the full application for admission, application fee, GRE, transcripts, recommendations, and departmental-specific requirements.)
The application for admission is also the application for funding. No special application is required in order to be considered for the GSAS/CAS Tuition Program.
The application deadline for some master's programs is occurring very shortly. If you are considering applying to the Graduate School and the application deadline is near or has passed, please consult with an advisor in either the College Advising Center or GSAS Graduate Enrollment Services.
Please contact Patti Davis (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Brendan Sullivan (email@example.com
) in the College Advising Center with any questions.
Conditions of the GSAS/CAS Tuition Program
Students must be enrolled minimally in 6-8 points per term (minimum of half-time study in the program) in order to qualify for the tuition award. If a student is awarded funding through the GSAS/CAS Tuition Program, a financial aid award will be applied to the student's tuition bill. Only students who begin their enrollment in the term immediately following their graduation will be eligible for the award. The tuition award will be applied only to courses required for the degree program and will be awarded on an on-going basis after enrollment is confirmed.
Please note that some of the GSAS master's programs offer departmental financial aid; the Graduate School also has some financial aid programs. If a student receives an award from the department or GSAS, then they will not also receive an award through the GSAS/CAS Tuition Program. Students are eligible for funding from only one program. If you are offered admission, the admission letter will include details about your financial aid award.
