Graduate Studies Application

If you're ready to move beyond an undergraduate degree, Rose‑Hulman can be part of your success!

Ready for the Next Step?

We recognize two general groups of graduate students: regular students and special students.

Regular Students
Regular students are those who formally apply, are admitted and enroll to follow an approved program leading to an advanced degree. Admission as a regular student generally requires that the applicant has a bachelor's degree in an appropriate undergraduate field from an accredited educational institution and at least a B average (GPA = 3.0/4.0).

Special Students
Special students are permitted to enroll in courses but are not admitted to a Master's degree program. The minimum requirement for admission as a special student is a Bachelor's degree in engineering, mathematics or natural science from an accredited educational institution.

About Graduate Studies

What your application should include:

  • A completed application form (See below)
  • College transcript(s) and course descriptions
  • Three letters of recommendation sent directly to the Office of Research and Graduate Studies
  • An applicant who is not a graduate of an accredited Bachelor of Science program in engineering, mathematics or natural science disciplines offered by a U.S. college or university must take the General Test portion of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE).
  • Although the GRE is not required for applicants from accredited Bachelor of Science degree programs in engineering, mathematics or natural science disciplines offered by a U.S. college or university, the results of the examination may serve to strengthen the application.
  • International students must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Applicants must have the Educational Testing Service (E.T.S.) report TOEFL and GRE scores directly to the Office of Research and Graduate Studies.

Water skiers in a pyramid formation skiing on Speed Lake.

Okay, maybe it's not really a watersports paradise.

So yeah, we might not be able to water ski here, but we aren't bored. There's a ton of stuff going on all the time. From 90+ clubs (Robotics club, anyone? How about paintball? Or swing dancing?), to athletics and intramurals, performing arts, residence life and cool events hosted by the student activities office.
