The normal requirements for admission to the graduate program in toxicology include a bachelor of arts or science degree from an accredited institution, an academic record which satisfies the minimum admission requirements established by the CU Graduate School and results of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). All applicants for the program should have completed a year of study in the following subjects: general chemistry, organic chemistry, calculus, biology, English and physics. In addition, courses in the following subjects are highly recommended to supplement the student's background: physiology, biochemistry, statistics, cell biology, physical chemistry, and computer science.
Under special circumstances, deficiencies in important areas may be made up within the first year after entrance into the program. Normally, admission to the program will be based on an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or better and a GRE score of 160 (verbal), 148 (quantitative) and 4.0 (analytical writing). However, applicants' recommendations, research experience and additional individual accomplishments will also be considered in the admissions process.
