Grad Visitation Weekend

Why Come Visit?


  • Prospective graduate students learn about the graduate program, interact with faculty and current graduate students, as well as tour research facilities.
  • On Saturday there will be organized excursions to see the sites or play in the snow.
  • Our best fellowships are awarded to the top students who visited us during the weekend.
  • All meals and activities are on us!
  • Travel and accommodation costs will be reimbursed for highly qualified applicants.

  1. All PhD applicants interested in attending should complete the  Graduate Visitation Weekend application (deadline January 1).  Please note that students with a BS degree may apply directly to the PhD program.
  2. Fill out the University Graduate School applications for admission according to the instructions on our admissions page.
  3. Complete both applications and submit all supporting documents (GRE scores, letters of recommendation, transcripts, etc) by January 1.
