2. FAQs

2.1. Are GRE scores required for the Fall 2021 application period?

For the 2020-2021 application year, scores on the general test or subject test of the GRE are optional for applicants, and not required. The decision to take or not take these exams will not factor into admission decision, but applicants are welcome to include them if they believe they add to their application. Grades and test scores are only two factors taken into consideration in the review for admission; letters of recommendation and statement of purpose are particularly important. Prior research experience is also valuable, but not required and it is understood that these may have been difficult in the last year. Be sure to describe any unusual circumstances in the statement of purpose.

2.2. If I graduate from a US school, do I have the take the TOEFL or IELTS exam?

The TOEFL or IELTS exams are required for all international students from non-English speaking countries that receive funding through Teaching Assistantships. This includes students that have received undergraduate degrees from a US institution. However, if you are planning to self-pay you may have this requirement waived under certain circumstances.

2.3. Do you hire TA's from departments other than Math?

All of Teaching Assistants are students from the Mathematical Sciences. Unfortunately, we are not able to hire from outside of the department.

2.4. Where can I find job announcements in the Mathematical Sciences?
