How to Apply

Graduate Admission information is available from the Office of Graduate and Professional Admissions at Rutgers University. A complete application for the Biomedical Engineering Graduate Program consists of the electronic application, three letters of recommendation, the application fee ($70), official transcripts from previous academic institutions, a personal statement which addresses the reasons for the your interest in graduate study, and TOEFL scores (if an international applicant). GRE General Test scores are required for PhD applicants and are preferred for MS/ME applicants. TOEFL and GRE scores have suggested minimums set by Rutgers that are useful in ascertaining the student's English and Quantitative abilities.

ALL PhD applications MUST be received by December 15 for consideration for the Fall cycle. BME at Rutgers admits students primarily for the fall terms. Supporting material must be received shortly thereafter. Fellowships are generally awarded at the time of offer of admission for the first year. International students applying from abroad must submit ALL application supporting material by January 15th. Early submission is strongly encouraged for all applicants.

ALL MS and ME applications and supporting material MUST be received by February 1 for first consideration for the Fall cycle.  There is no departmental funding for incoming masters students. Funding must be handled by the applicant.

Women and underrepresented students are encouraged to apply.
