The application for admission in Fall 2016 will be available in late September 2015. The deadline will be early January 2016.
Online Application Information / Guidelines:
- The application for Fall 2016 admission can be found here: http://gradstudies.ucdavis.edu/prospective-students/admissions-application
- The application fee is $90 for the domestic application and $110 for the international. The fee may be paid by credit card or e-check. The fee must be paid before the application will be considered as complete. If you are applying to multiple programs, you will need to fill out and pay for a separate application for each program.
- Letters of Recommendation must be submitted electronically through the online application. Hard or email copies will not be accepted. Please enter the email of your recommenders when prompted, and the system will contact them directly. You do not need to wait for their letters of recommendation to be complete in order to submit your application.
- Please submit only one transcript for each university or college you have attended.
- UC Davis requires academic records from each college-level institution you have attended. You will be instructed to upload scanned copies of your transcripts after you have submitted your online application. For more details visit https://gradstudies.ucdavis.edu/submit-transcripts.
- The GRE general test is required. It is strongly recommended that the subject test also be taken but it is not required. Though most of our applicants take the biology test, any topic can be taken. Please have GRE scores sent to the Entomology Department (school code: 4834; department code: 0209). GRE scores are no longer accepted after five years.
- In order to be admitted, a prospective graduate student must be accepted into a laboratory by a major professor. The major professor guides the student’s research and provides partial financial support for the student. The Entomology web site has a list of professors, their research interests, and their contact information. Prospective students are highly encouraged to contact potential major professors as part of the application process and discuss the possibility of working in their lab.
