How to Apply for M.S. or Ph.D.
If your eventual goal is a Ph.D. degree, we encourage you to apply directly for a Ph.D. degree since receiving an M.S. degree is not a requirement on the path to receiving a Ph.D. degree.
The application process is entirely online via the Cornell University Graduate School. Please see the Graduate School's main website, their application website, and the application.
The vast majority of students start their degree programs in the Fall semester. Current application deadlines are listed here.
Components of the Application
- Application form
- Statement of Purpose
- Transcripts from all universities you have attended
- Three letters of recommendation
- GRE General Exam
- Application fee
No GRE Subject Exam is required.
Applicants whose native language is not English must also meet the English proficiency requirement set by the Cornell University Graduate School which is described here.
