Students are admitted to the Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology for fall semester only. The application deadline is Nov. 30, 2018 and applications received after this date will be considered on a space-available basis only.

The application process is done entirely online. A required departmental supplemental application form should be uploaded to the online application system.

Application Requirements

  • Download and complete the graduate applicant profile form. Save the completed form as a .pdf document and upload to your online application.

  • Three letters of recommendations. You will be asked to provide contact information for your references, and they will be asked to submit their letter through the online application.
  • An application fee ($75 domestic, $95 foreign students).
  • All international students who are non-English speakers are required to submit TOEFL or IELTS scores. However, applicants who have completed 24 quarter credits or 16 semester credits within the past 24 months in residence as a full-time student at a recognized institution of higher learning in the United States or other English-speaking country before entering the University of Minnesota are generally exempted from this requirement. ETS will download your TOEFL or IELTS score directly into your online application.
