Priority applicants are considered for early admission decision and special fellowships.
Applications after January 5 will not be considered for Fall admission.
Applications are reviewed on a continuous basis beginning in September. Applications received later will be considered as time permits.
Due to the large number of students who have enrolled in recent years, we expect very limited funded openings for Spring 2018.
Graduate admissions at Carnegie Mellon are handled at the department level. Interested students apply to the Department of Chemistry directly.
When you have written your statement of purpose and have GRE scores (or scheduled test dates), the online application can be completed in about 30 minutes. Paper applications are not accepted.
You will need the names and email addresses of three individual who are familiar with your abilities and who have already agreed to provide letters of reference for you. A letter from your current or previous research advisor is especially important. They will be prompted automatically when you submit your application; they will receive an email at that time describing how they can submit their letter. Online is strongly preferred. See the FAQ for more information.
We particularly encourage the submission of resumés or CVs. These are especially helpful with complete citations for publications (including titles of papers) and presentations (including where the presentation was given).
