Applications to the graduate programs in the Department of Geography & Spatial Sciences, the Department of Earth Sciences, and the School of Marine Science and Policy are evaluated on the basis of the applicant's GRE scores, TOEFL scores (if applicable), undergraduate record, and three letters of recommendation. The Department of Earth Sciences will consider qualified applicants without a previous degree in geology, although preliminary work may be required. A list of CEOE faculty and their research interests is available to assist prospective students in matching their interests to those of our faculty. Applicants are encouraged to contact faculty members working in areas that interest them.

All graduate applicants should submit the following:

• Graduate Record Examination (GRE) general (aptitude) test scores
• Transcripts of all college work
• Three (3) letters of recommendation from persons qualified to judge the student's potential for graduate work
• A supplemental page or personal interest statement indicating your specific interests in order to help us assign an appropriate adviser

A minimum TOEFL paper-based score of 550 is required by the University and a score of 600 is recommended by our College.  A TOEFL IBT score of 79 is required by the University and a score of 100 is recommended by our College.  For additional information about TOEFL test requirements, please view the University’s Graduate College site.
