Please disregard the outdated video references about the GRE requirement and PhD stipend amount:

  • GRE scores are no longer used by the Admissions Committee in evaluating applications to any of our programs. If GRE scores are submitted, the committee will not look at them or take them into account when making admissions decisions.
  • The 10-month PhD stipend for the 2024-2025 academic year (September 1, 2024 - June 30, 2025) has increased to $28,050.
