There are two separate applications:
Applications for admission only do not require GRE scores, while applications for a Graduate Assistantship require GRE scores to be sent to the Admissions Office.
To apply to the mathematics degree program, applicants must follow the process described at the following page:
Applicants to the Mathematics program must follow the admissions process described in the Graduate Catalog, or at the Graduate Admissions website at http://www.marshall.edu/graduate. International applicants should also consult the Office of International Admissions and review the website http://www.marshall.edu/admissions/international.
To ensure full consideration for admission, domestic applicants must ensure that their application materials are received by the Graduate Admissions office no later than August 1 for admission in the fall, and no later than December 1 for admission in the spring. International applicants must ensure that their application materials are received by the Graduate Admissions office no later than June 15, for admission in the fall, and no later than October 15, for admission in the spring. Applicants who apply for a Graduate Assistantship should follow the earlier dates set below in the section Timeframe for Awarding Graduate Assistantships.
The Mathematics program may admit applicants conditionally, for one term, pending receipt of required credentials. Applicants whose transcripts do not show coursework equivalent to a bachelor’s degree in mathematics may be admitted conditionally and required to take additional foundational courses, which may include undergraduate courses. Applicants who are conditionally admitted are not eligible to receive a Graduate Assistantship, but become eligible when fully admitted.
The Mathematics program may admit applicants provisionally, for one term, when the undergraduate Grade Point Average does not meet the requirement for admission.
For more information on the types of admissions, please see www.marshall.edu/graduate/admissions/types-of-admission/.
The department offers a limited number of Graduate Assistantships. Applicants wishing to be considered for a Graduate Assistantship must submit a separate application form to the Mathematics Department Assistant Chair for Graduate Studies. This form can be obtained from the Assistant Chair for Graduate Studies or from the Department of Mathematics website at http://www.marshall.edu/math/graduate.
For complete information on graduate assistantships and other financial support opportunities, please see the Graduate College website at http://www.marshall.edu/graduate/.
Additional requirements for Graduate Assistant applications:
Offers for Graduate Assistantships will be made beginning after May 15, for admission the following fall, and November 15, for admission the following spring.
