How to Apply
How do you want to create for good? To join our college as a graduate student and get the preparation you need to be a part of the future of chemical engineering, you’ll need to apply through the Ohio University Graduate College. Applicants with a GRE quantitative score in the 80th percentile or better may be entitled to a waiver of the application fee. Contact graduate program assistant Tom Riggs at 740.597.2797 to receive a fee waiver code that can be entered online.
Feb. 1 for international applicants, July 15 for U.S. students (but it's a competitive process, so it's a good idea to make the Feb. 1 deadline)
Sept. 1 for international applicants, Dec. 1 for U.S. students (the competitive process makes Sept. 1 a wise goal)
Dec. 1 for international applicants, April 1 for U.S. students (the earlier the better).
For applicants from ABET-accredited institutions or schools otherwise recognized as exceptional, GRE scores may be waived. A GRE quantitative score in the 80th percentile or better is typically required. A lower score requires exceptional qualifications in other areas. A score lower than the 70th percentile usually makes an applicant ineligible for admission.
For those applicants who must submit GRE scores, official score reports must be submitted upon acceptance into the program.
For non-native English speakers without a prior degree from a U.S. school, English proficiency (TOEFL or IELTS) scores are typically required. Students with English proficiency scores lower than the university requirements for funding eligibility may gain funding eligibility by successfully completing the recommended university English language improvement courses.
For those applicants who must submit English proficiency scores, official score reports must be submitted upon acceptance into the program.
Applicants whose educational preparation does not include the full range of required coursework typical of an accredited bachelor's degree in chemical engineering may be admitted with requirements for additional coursework to fill such gaps. Applicants lacking a background in mathematics through differential equations, in general chemistry, in general physics, or in thermodynamics will not be considered.
