Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is the minimum GRE score required for admission?
GRE is not required for admission to Physics M.S. Program.
2. I have been awarded a 3-year B.S. degree from an institution in my country. Can I get admission into your Physics M.S. program?
Three-year B.S. degrees do not satisfy our four-year degree course requirement. The applicant must obtain BS+MS degree from a reputed university in this case.
3. I will apply only if I know I will be offered financial aid. Can you tell me whether I should apply or not?
Financial aid cannot be decided beforehand. Almost all admitted students typically receive some form of financial aid.
4. Does the financial aid automatically continue in the subsequent year(s)?
No. The continuation of the financial aid depends on the student performance in the first year and availability of funds. Financial aid is typically limited to two years.
5. How long is the M.S. in Physics Program?
The students are expected to complete our M.S. Program in 2 years. In several cases students have graduated in less than two years. This requires departmental approval.
6. Can the Physics Department waive the tuition?
Tuition cannot be waived under any circumstances.
7. I have a non-physics B.S. degree. Can I get admission to the Physics M.S. program?
Such decisions based on your individual circumstances. Such applicants can get admitted based on the recommendation of the Graduate Committee, but in most cases might need to take additional undergraduate advanced courses.
