MSIA Graduate Program Admissions Information

Admission Requirements

Each applicant must hold a D.D.S., D.M.D., M.D. or a baccalaureate degree from a recognized college or university. In general, to be admitted, students must have achieved a B average as an undergraduate student.

The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is required. However, individuals who have completed the DAT or MCAT may substitute these tests for the GRE. If English is not the primary language of the applicant, a minimum score of 550 (paper-based) or 213 (computer-based) is required on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). A brief narrative describing the reasons for applying to the MSIA Graduate Program is also required. The narrative should include a statement of career goals and area of research interest. A completed application includes:

  1. Application form
  2. Official transcripts from each university of college attended
  3. Three letters of recommendation
  4. Official record of GRE
  5. Narrative from the applicant outlining his/her objective and career goals
  6. Proof of English language proficiency, if the applicant is from a foreign language country

Graduate College Cost of Study
Tuition, other fees and expenses are listed on the UNMC Office of Graduate Studies website.

Financial Aid
Graduate students can be supported through competitive university fellowships, research assistantships, and research grants held by the faculty. A limited number of graduate research assistantships (includes stipend, tuition and fees) are available to entering students. Graduate students are encouraged to apply for a research assistantship as soon as their thesis/dissertation proposal is approved.
