Graduate Studies Application

If you're ready to move beyond an undergraduate degree, Rose-Hulman can be part of your success!

Ready for the Next Step?

We recognize two general groups of graduate students: regular students and special students.

Regular Students
Regular students are those who formally apply, are admitted and enroll to follow an approved program leading to an advanced degree. Admission as a regular student generally requires that the applicant has a bachelor's degree in an appropriate undergraduate field from an accredited educational institution and at least a B average (GPA = 3.0/4.0).

Special Students
Special students are permitted to enroll in courses but are not admitted to a Master's degree program. The minimum requirement for admission as a special student is a Bachelor's degree in engineering, mathematics or natural science from an accredited educational institution.

About Graduate Studies

What your application should include:

  • A completed application form (See below)
  • College transcript(s) and course descriptions
  • Three letters of recommendation sent directly to the Office of Research and Graduate Studies
  • An applicant who is not a graduate of an accredited Bachelor of Science program in engineering, mathematics or natural science disciplines offered by a U.S. college or university must take the General Test portion of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE).
  • Although the GRE is not required for applicants from accredited Bachelor of Science degree programs in engineering, mathematics or natural science disciplines offered by a U.S. college or university, the results of the examination may serve to strengthen the application.
  • International students must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Applicants must have the Educational Testing Service (E.T.S.) report TOEFL and GRE scores directly to the Office of Research and Graduate Studies.
