Yes. All applicants are notified.
SUPPLEMENTARY APPLICATION MATERIALS
The statement should provide relevant educational and work history and background information, such as how you became interested in the field of applied mathematics and how your background has prepared you for graduate study, as well as educational and professional goals. The personal statement is uploaded with the online application. While a resume may be included, it does not suffice as a personal statement.
Many criteria are considered during the application process, and letters of recommendation play a major role. The graduate committee can obtain better insight on an applicant with four letters of recommendation.
Generally, the graduate committee of the Department of Applied Mathematics does not encourage spring or summer admission, largely due to the fact that required yearlong course sequences start during the fall semester. For this reason, the department has specific application deadlines which can be found on our website.
Competition for admission to the Department of Applied Mathematics graduate program is keen, and it is highly recommended you apply by the posted deadlines for domestic and international applications. The graduate committee of the Department of Applied Mathematics reserves the right not to consider applications received past the deadline.
In the event that you are not accepted to the Ph.D. program, you will be considered for the MS program.
Yes, you must submit an application and fee for each academic program you apply to at the University. An exception is the MS with Computational Science and Engineering Track, which is strictly an add-on to a primary graduate program outside of Applied Mathematics.
No, please submit all available application materials by the deadline. Official scores sent by ETS after the deadline will be added to your application. Contact the Graduate Program Coordinator if you have a specific concern.
For your application to the graduate program, it is acceptable to upload unofficial transcripts with your application. Once you have been admitted to the university, you will need to provide official transcripts.
No, but most graduate students enter the program with either a teaching assistantship or a research assistantship.
Please include the words FINANCIAL SUPPORT at the top of your personal statement.
Internet-based (iBT): 100
The TOEFL/IELTS requirement is waived for students who qualify under the following conditions: a) the student’s native language is English, or b) the student has completed at least one year of full-time study at a U.S. Institution (or at an institution in a country where English is the native language), at the time of submission, or within two years from the desired admission term.
Analytical Writing: there is no set minimum but the mean score of accepted applicants is above 4.
Beginning in fall 2011, ETS changed the GRE score scale from 200-800 to 130-170, with a 1-point increment vs. a 10-point increment between scores. During the transition to the new scoring system, the graduate committee will review all GRE scores according to ETS guidelines.
The University of Colorado Boulder GRE code is 4841.
