External Graduate Applicants

The Thesis track, MS in Biomedical Engineering, requires a Thesis Advisor.  Applicants who do not have a commitment from a Thesis Advisor should apply to the non-Thesis track, that is, MS Engineering with Specialization in Biomedical Engineering.

External applicants should select Engineering: Biomedical (MS) on CSU Mentor.

(MS students in residence without a Thesis Advisor will be considered to be on the non-Thesis track.)

How to apply:

    1) Submit an online application through CSU mentor followed by submission of official transcripts and GRE scores to Admissions.  For program, select Engineering: Biomedical (MS) on CSU Mentor.

    2)  Submit unofficial transcripts, GRE scores, statement of purpose, and contact information for three (3) people who will be submitting letters of recommendation on your behalf via interfolio.

Please note:

Seniors: Applications to the Blended (or 4+1) program are accepted during the fall and spring quarters.  Students should apply in fall quarter to begin taking graduate courses in the subsequent winter or spring; students applying in spring can begin taking courses the following fall quarter.

If you'd like to be in the Blended (4+1) program, please follow the link to the Application Process, and turn in the Blended Application Form and attachments (links above.)
