- Confirmation from a GDPE faculty member that they will serve as your advisor*
- Bachelor’s degree in any of the agricultural, anthropological, biological, biochemical, mathematical, or physical sciences from an accredited college or university
- Undergraduate GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale
- GRE scores are not required for admittance to the GDPE program – check with your prospective advisor for any specific requirements they may have
- Three letters of recommendation
- A statement of purpose (typically <2pg; here’s some good advice on how to prepare this)
* Students can still apply without a confirmed advisor, but cannot be admitted until we receive a letter of commitment from that advisor.
