to the Graduate Program
applicant must submit a completed application form obtainable from
the Office of Research and Graduate Studies. The application must
also have three letters of recommendation sent directly to the Office
of Research and Graduate Studies.
to the joint Master of Science/Doctor of Medicine degree program
is a dual process. Students entering the program will be independently
accepted into the graduate program at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
and the doctor of medicine program at Indiana University School
of Medicine. Admission to each degree program is accomplished independently,
though applications should be submitted simultaneously.
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). In addition, 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. A minimum score of 580, with the distribution listed below,
is normally required on the TOEFL: Listening: 56; Structure and
Written Expression: 60; Vocabulary and Reading Expression: 60.
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 can serve to strengthen the application.
recognizes two general groups of graduate students; regular students
and special students.
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 have
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). Under special circumstances an applicant who does not
satisfy all of the above requirements may be admitted as a regular
student if additional evidence of ability is provided. An applicant
must be admitted as a regular student before he or she can receive
any financial assistance from Rose-Hulman.
Admission to graduate study grants a student permission to pursue
a master's degree program in the program for which application was
made. A change of graduate program is not recommended since it requires
reapplication to and admission by the new program. All financial
aid accompanying the admission to the original program is forfeited
by a student changing programs. The student must reapply for financial
aid from the remaining resources. Students admitted with an undergraduate
GPA below 3.0/4.0 are automatically on probation for the first quarter
of graduate work. Admission as a regular student on probation means
the student must have at least a B average (GPA = 3.0/4.0) for the
first twelve credit hours of graduate study in order to continue.
applicant who has an academic record that cannot be readily compared
to the Rose-Hulman admission standards may, upon recommendation
of the major department, be admitted, subject to any conditions
stated by the Associate Dean of the Faculty. An individual so admitted
is considered to be on probation.
new graduate students should report to the Office of Research and
Graduate Studies upon their arrival to campus.
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 science from an accredited educational institution.
If a special student formally applies for admission as a regular
graduate student and is admitted, courses taken as a special student
can be included in the plan of study for a Master's degree subject
to the following conditions:
course must be from the approved list of graduate courses and must
be completed with a grade of B or better.
No more than twelve credit hours taken as a special student can
be included in the plan of study.
The plan of study is prepared in consultation with the student's
advisor and with the approval of his or her advisory committee.
Special students who wish to pursue a Master's degree are urged
to apply for admission before completing twelve credit hours.
