Admissions

The application for Fall 2016 will be available on-line on/around August 15, 2016. Please note this program does not have a Spring admission. We encourage all applicants who are interested in the Computational Biology PhD Program to complete their application, including three letters of recommendation, test scores, transcripts, resume, and statement of purpose, by DECEMBER 1ST.

Admission into the doctoral program in the field of Computational Biology is based purely on academic merit and research experience. Financial need plays no role in the admission procedure.  All Ph.D. students who are admitted are fully funded as long as they remain in good academic standing. Support from Cornell includes tuition, stipend, and health insurance. Support is available in the form of teaching assistantships, graduate research assistantships, and fellowships. You can find more information on costs and funding here.

Cornell University expects all applicants to complete their application materials without the use of paid agents, credentials services, or other paid professional assistance. The use of such services violates University policy, and may lead to the rejection of application materials, the revocation of an admissions offer, cancellation of admission, or involuntary withdrawal from the University.
