In addition to the general requirements for admission to graduate programs in the Graduate School and the College of Humanities and Sciences, students are expected to satisfy the following minimum standards for admission:
- Students must have a minimum of 30 semester credits in undergraduate physics or engineering, of which at least 18 semester credits must be at the upper level in physics.
- Satisfactory GRE scores.
- Provisional admission may be granted where deficiencies exist. These deficiencies must be removed by the end of the first year of residence or its part-time equivalent, when the student’s application will be re-examined. Courses that are designed to remove deficiencies will not be accepted for credit toward the graduate degree.
