Application Process

Applications for the PhD, MSc, and 4 +1 MSc option are handled through the Graduate School and are due January 1st.  Applications consist of an application form, personal statement, transcripts, three reference letters, a Resume, and (for international students) TOEFL scores.

Applying for the 4+1 program is a two-step process spanning junior and senior years.  During their junior year, students are to submit application materials to their academic advisor and the Graduate Program Director for preliminary approval.  If approved, students will begin taking MSc courses in the fall of their senior year.  Students must then submit the standard application through the Graduate School by January 1st of their senior year in order to officially apply to the MS program.  For more detailed information about eligibility, timelines, and application materials please refer to this Resource Economics 4+1 Application Procedures document.
