Preparation for the Immunology Program

Prospective applicants are required to have completed a minimum of one year of college-level biology, at least one year of college-level mathematics, and general and organic chemistry. Although not required, successful completion of courses in biochemistry, cell biology and genetics are assets for graduate biomedical study. Most of our current students majored in a biological science during their undergraduate years. The Graduate Record Examination is required, but a subject test (Biology or Biochemistry) is optional.

Selection Criteria

Typical highly competitive applicants have GPAs of at least 3.4 (based on a 4.0 system), GRE scores at the 70th percentile or greater, and have engaged in significant laboratory research during or following their undergraduate education. Following review of submitted applications, competitive candidates are invited to visit Tufts and meet with students and faculty.

The Immunology program is committed to diversity and encourages applications from individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences that will enrich the mix of students on our campus. These include individuals determined by NIH as being under-represented in biomedical sciences, including individuals with disabilities.

The application process is completed on-line.  Details about the application process and important deadlines for applicants can be found on the Sackler School admissions pages.
