Undergraduate admission

Our undergraduate students enter the School of Science as direct admits or through University College. Either way, you will follow the same degree requirements.

Requirements for international student graduate admission

All international students must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Scores required for admission follow the Indiana University (IU) Graduate Program Minimum Requirements.

International students should visit the Office of International Affairs for application and requirement information.


Master of Science in Geology

To be eligible for graduate admission in this program, you should hold a baccalaureate degree in Geology from an accredited institution of higher learning including a summer field course, and one year of chemistry and mathematics through college algebra and trigonometry. Individuals with a baccalaureate degree in another area of science are also encouraged to apply. The departmental graduate advisory committee will prescribe a plan of study to remove deficiencies.

A grade point average of 3.0 or higher in geology classes is expected. Applicants are required to submit three letters of recommendation.

A cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher is expected. Applicants are required to submit three letters of recommendation.

January 15 is the application deadline for fall entry with priority consideration for financial aid. However, applications will be considered through the year.
