ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

The Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering adheres to the Admissions Policies of UNL Graduate Studies. Prospective students are required to submit all documents by the specified application deadlines and meet the minimum entrance criteria outlined on the Application Checklist.

Departmental admission requirements above some of the baseline requirements mandated by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln are: for graduate admission in full standing, a candidate must secure: A) minimum GRE scores in the 85 and 75 percentile for its quantitative and verbal modules, respectively, and a score of 3.0 for its analytical writing component. B) A cumulative grade point average of 3.0 in a scale of 4.0 or better in its undergraduate degree.

Incoming Students with a Chemical Engineering Background
An undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering from an ABET-accredited (or equivalent) program is considered the necessary previous experience for direct admittance into the PhD program.

Incoming Students Without a Chemical Engineering Background
Each applicant in this situation will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. The College of Engineering requires that a PhD student must pass a Qualifying Examination within 3 to 4 semesters of enrolling in a PhD program (see Qualifying Examination for PhD Candidates). Thus, the applicant should be aware of this deadline.

ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS 
The University has additional requirements for international students including degrees, transcripts, financial resources and Visa forms, and English proficiency.  
For more information on these requirements please visit the Graduate Studies Website

Application Deadlines
Fall Admission: December 23

Admission decisions and priority funding decisions for graduate assistantships are made shortly after the published application deadline. For the best chance of admission, all application requirements should completed in their entirety, and your GAMES departmental application should be submitted by the published deadline. Late applications will be considered on a rolling basis; however, admission is unlikely due to limited space and resources.

*Although students may be admitted for the summer term, core CHME courses of the graduate curriculum are not offered in the summer session. Students admitted for summer enrollment may choose to take graduate electives, or immediately begin research work at the direction of their advisor.
