Graduate students in the Chemical Engineering program are students of the Rackham Graduate School. Our admissions process is handled through Rackham, but all applications are reviewed and admissions decisions are made by our departmental admissions committee.
We match new students with research advisors in October after all new students are on campus. Contacting individual faculty members will not influence the admissions decision. Learn more about admission criteria and requirements
PhD applications are due Dec. 15. MS applications are due Jan 15. Learn more about the admissions timeline. Applicants who ultimately want to earn a PhD should apply directly to the Ph.D. program. A Master’s degree is not required to earn a PhD degree.
There is no separate application for financial aid. All students who intend to earn a PhD will be automatically considered for aid. We do not make any offers of financial assistance to Master’s applicants. Learn more about financial support.
– If your degree will be/was granted by a Non-U.S. Institution, you must send an official transcript to the Rackham Graduate School prior to the application deadline.
– If your degree will be/was granted by a U.S. Institution, you may send your official U.S. transcript after an offer of admission is made. However, to complete the online application, you must upload a scanned copy of the official transcript
