Admission Requirements of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology 

Pre-doctoral trainees in Molecular Genetics and Microbiology are admitted to the Graduate School of Stony Brook University by application to the Program.

In addition to the minimum Graduate School requirements, the following are taken into account:

A. Undergraduate performance in science courses.

B. Percentile on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) General Test.

C. Three letters of recommendation.

The program does not require, but prefers to see, evidence of research activity as an undergraduate student. Whenever possible, prospective students are invited to Stony Brook for interviews with the Program faculty.

All students who are accepted into the Molecular Genetics and Microbiology Program are accepted with full support. The level of support for 2017 is $29,000 per calendar year plus full tuition scholarship. Health insurance is provided for all students as a fringe benefit.
