Admission is granted on the basis of the following criteria:
- Quality of previous graduate and undergraduate work. The Graduate School requires a minimum B average (3.0 on a 4.0 scale) in all previous coursework. For Ph.D. applicants, graduate as well as undergraduate grades are considered. Performance within specific courses may also be considered.
- Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores. This is required and the Biology subject test is recommended because it may provide helpful information to the selection committee. Maryland's institutional code is 5814.
- Strength of 3 letters of recommendation from persons competent to judge your probable success in graduate school. These letters are usually from former professors who are able to give an in-depth evaluation of your strengths and weaknesses with respect to academic work. Additional recommendations may come from employers or supervisors who are familiar with your work experience.
- Statement of Goals, Research Interests, and Experiences. This statement helps the selection committee identify potential faculty sponsors with similar research interests.
- Acceptance by a faculty advisor. This is absolutely required; therefore, important to make early contact with faculty that share your research interests.
- Other evidence of graduate potential. This could include publications, grant proposals, specific work experience, or special skills and should be submitted as part of your resume/CV.

Late applications may be reviewed if the student makes a special request in writing.
No student is accepted without a faculty sponsor. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that applicants initiate discussions with potential faculty advisors well before the application deadlines.
The Committee recommends acceptable students to the faculty for review. Once a commitment of faculty sponsorship and financial support is made, the Graduate Director recommends acceptance to the Dean of the Graduate School. The Dean then grants acceptance if all Graduate School requirements have been met. International students must also meet minimum requirements from Office of International Services.
Following approval, the applicant will receive an offer of admission from the Graduate School specifying date of entrance and an offer letter from the Department indicating the stipend level, duration of support, and amount of tuition remission. To be admitted, you must respond affirmatively to both offers. Changes to the offer letter, including change of effective date, change of advisor, etc. require authorization by the Graduate Director.
