Each application must include a completed Application for Admission form; an official certified transcript sent directly from ALL colleges, graduate or professional schools attended; three letters of recommendation concerning the potential of the applicant for graduate education; and an official copy of GRE scores (and TOEFL or IELTS, if international). Applicants will need to provide an email address for the individuals asked to write a recommendation letter when you submit for your application. They will each get an email giving them the location for the online reference to complete. Letters of recommendation should be emailed by your recommenders.
All required admissions documents and supporting materials should be sent directly to the Office of Enrollment Services, UTMB Health, 301 University Boulevard, Galveston, Texas 77555-1305. The application must be submitted online. GSBS normally considers applications for Fall only and the portal is open to apply on the 1st of October.
Review of completed application packages (including application with fee paid, all transcripts, scores, and reference letters) begins in January. It is recommended that you have your application complete and ready for review prior to that time. Most decisions are made by mid-April for the Fall applicant pool.
Since many programs have specific deadlines to submit your electronic application or other term enrollment possibilities, the applicant should request this information from the appropriate school representative or web site. International applicants are urged to submit application and supporting documentation 9 months prior to the anticipated date of entry.
Students applying to the combined M.D.-Ph.D. program should submit an application only to the Texas Medical and Dental Schools Application Service only indicating an interest in the combined program. A separate application to the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences is not needed.
