This program sounds cool - how do I apply?
Complete the Graduate School online application.
Is there an application fee to apply?
Yes – the CSU Office of Admissions requires that all applicants pay a $50 non-refundable fee at the time they submit their application
Do I need to take the GRE to apply?
Our admissions committee requires that you take and submit to us scores from a standardized upper level examination. In most cases, this is the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). However we will also accept the MCAT (Medical College Admissions Test) and the DAT (Dental Admissions Test). We only require scores from the standard GRE (Verbal Quantitative, Writing) examination and do not require a GRE subject test.
What is the application deadline?
April 1 (no joke…..)
How many positions do you have in the Program?
We anticipate enrolling up to 50 students each year. Our goal is to keep the program small enough to allow effective instructor interactions and quality learning experiences while also maintaining a critical mass of students for networking, support and overall programmatic impact on the field.
How long will it be until I hear whether or not my application has been accepted?
We anticipate sending out our first set of acceptance/wait list/decline notices by May 15th. However we will have a rolling admissions policy throughout the summer to notify students as positions become available.
How competitive will it be to gain admission to the program?
Since Fall 2013 will mark the first class to formally enter this program, we do not have the ratio of applications to acceptances at this time. We will post these data as soon as it becomes available. Our admissions committee will carefully scrutinize each application with the goal of admitting individuals that we fully anticipate will succeed/shine in our Program.
How much will this cost?
Tuition and fees for the 2013-2014 academic year will be determined in Spring, 2013 and will be similar to other CVMBS Professional Masters Programs. At this time, our program does not offer assistantships, fellowships or tuition waivers. Please consult the CSU Student Financial Services website for more information of federal student loans and other options that may be available to you.
For current graduate tuition and fees see the CSU Graduate Tuition and Fees Chart.
How long does it take to complete the Program?
The Microbiology-Immunology Masters Program is designed to be completed in one academic year (Fall & Spring semesters).
Do you prefer Colorado residents over non-residents?
No – our admissions committee strives to admit the most qualified applicants regardless of residency
Do you hold admissions interviews?
No – due to the anticipated volume of applications and the short turn-around time for making decisions, we do not hold interviews for the program
Can I schedule an appointment to talk to someone about the program?

Are there any special forms for my letters of recommendation?
No – just have your referees send their letters to our Program Coordinator at Jeffrey.Wilusz@colostate.edu and our Academic Support Cooordinator at Collette.DeWitt@colostate.edu
