Applications for admission, complete with supporting documentation, must be sent in duplicate to the Graduate Admissions Office so as to be received by January 15 for September enrollment. Typically, admission for the Spring semester is not considered, given the sequential nature of the coursework.

Important Note for Prospective Applicants

All applicants must submit their GRE scores. Without GRE scores, applicants will not be considered for admission to the program.

Financial Assistance

Financial aid for qualified applicants is usually available in the form of research and teaching assistantships of approximately $14,000 plus a tuition waiver. In subsequent years of a student's program, the stipend is increased so that by a student's final year, the stipend is typically $16,000. Additional stipends are available for project work during the January intercession between the fall and spring term. Senior students often are awarded summer internships, and for new students summer support is provided when feasible.

Housing

Graduate students are required to find their own housing. There are several options on campus, and can be found by visiting the UMass Graduate School's Housing Page.

Additionally, there are several apartment complexes conveniently located on the bus route. Information regarding the housing opportunities in the Amherst area can be found at UMass Commuter Services and Housing Resource Center. Other resources include the classified sections of local newspapers, such as the Daily Hampshire Gazette and the Springfield Republican.
