Application Process 

 

The application process involves submission of two (2) online applications:

 1) A Department of Biological Sciences application

 2) An Auburn University Graduate School application

NOTE: The two required applications are submitted to different offices.  While the Graduate School application allows you to create a username and password, IT MUST BE COMPLETED AND SUBMITTED IN A SINGLE VISIT. If you experience any problems with the Graduate School on-line application, please contact the Graduate School by phone (334-844-2132) or email (gradadm@auburn.edu) with your reference number. The Department of Biological Sciences can not assist you with the Auburn Graduate School on-line application.

"Applicants are also strongly encouraged (but not required) to ask their recommenders to complete the ETS Personal Potential Index (PPI) in addition to writing letters of recommendation. If you have registered to take the GRE, you can send up to four evaluation reports free as part of your test fee. Please enter your name exactly as it appears in your registration. To sign up for the PPI, create an ETS PPI applicant account."

Applications for Spring 2014 must be completed by November 21, 2013.
