Application Status

Receipt of Application Materials

Log into your online application to see which of your letters of recommendation, transcripts, and exam scores have been received by our Graduate Admissions office. Please allow up to 1 week after the submission of your application for TOEFL scores to be paired with your application.


Applicants whom the admissions committees intend to invite for interviews will be contacted in December or early January. The plan for interviews in 2022 is described below but may change. Please visit this site for updates.

Interviews will be conducted virtually in January, and each BBS Track will set its own interview schedule. Following the interview process, top applicants will be invited to campus for in-person recruitment activities on the following weekends:

February 18-20: Immunology, MMPP, and Neuroscience

February 25-27: BQBS, CBB, Microbiology, MCGD, Plant Molecular Biology

Notification of Decisions

Admissions decisions are communicated in written form by the Graduate School and not by the BBS Program. Only communications sent directly from the Graduate School may be considered official notifications of admission or of financial aid decisions. Depending on the BBS Track to which you applied, decisions will arrive any time between February and March.
