Offers of Admission

Offers of admission to a specific program for a specific semester and year are sent by graduate programs following the evaluation of applications. Offers of admission for a fall semester are not valid for a previous summer term. Such offers are limited to the conditions included and are subject to the final approval of the Dean of the Graduate School. If specific application documents are missing, the applicant has deficiencies to remove upon arrival, or the cumulative GPA is below 3.00 on a 4.00 scale, the offer will be conditional upon fulfilling all remaining requirements. Offer letters will indicate a deadline date for accepting or declining the offer. As a member of the Council of Graduate Schools, Stony Brook University gives all doctoral applicants until at least April 15th to reply to an offer of admission.
