Criteria for Admission into the UTSA CMB Ph.D. Program

An admissions committee of seven tenured or tenure-track faculty members reviews all applications for admission into the CMB Ph.D. program. Although there is no single, specific set of minimum criteria required for admission into the program, multiple aspects are considered. These include academic background, GPA, GRE scores, laboratory research experience, letters of recommendation, and the applicant’s personal statement explaining why he/she wishes to pursue a doctoral degree in cell and molecular biology.
