Admission to the M.S. Program in Mathematical Sciences requires that an applicant has a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA of 2.75 for all undergraduate work or a minimum GPA of 3.00 for the last two years of undergraduate work, and completed at least 18 credits of upper-division mathematics or statistics courses beyond calculus. If applicable, international applicants must submit an official TOEFL score (minimum score of 79 for the IBT, 213 for the computer test, or 550 for the paper test).
To apply for admission to the M.S. Program, applicants must submit application materials to both the Graduate College and the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Firstly, applicants must submit to the Graduate College the following materials:
1. a completed application form;
2. the official transcripts from all colleges and universities the student has attended;
3. the official TOEFL score if applicable.
Secondly, applicants must submit to the Department the following materials:
1. copies of all official transcripts sent to the Graduate College;
2. at least two letters of recommendation from persons familiar with the applicant’s academic record and potential for advanced study in mathematical sciences;
3. a completed application form for Graduate Assistantship, if interested;
4. a statement of purpose describing the aim in applying for graduate study, the particular area of specialization within the mathematical sciences (if known), and any additional information that may aid the selection committee in evaluating preparation and aptitude for graduate study.
