The University of Maryland is dedicated to maintaining a vibrant international graduate student community. The office of International Students and Scholars Services (ISSS) is a valuable resource of information and assistance for prospective and current international students. International applicants are encouraged to explore the services they offer, and contact them with related questions. The University of Maryland Graduate School offers admission to international students based on academic information; it is not a guarantee of attendance. Admitted international students will then receive instructions about obtaining the appropriate visa to study at the University of Maryland which will require submission of additional documents. Please see the Graduate Admissions Process for International applicants for more information.
Applicants are encouraged to contact the Hobsons online application’s helpdesk for any technical issues. For questions related to the admissions process, prospective students may contact the Graduate School.
Materials to be sent to the Maryland Biophysics Program should be addressed to:
University of Maryland College Park
These components of your application file each present a different aspect of your case. They are therefore considered together, not separately. For example, we expect that applicants who have taken many graduate courses will perform better on the GRE exam than those who have not. Similarly, if you had a semester in which you performed below your usual standards then we expect that the reasons for that will be addressed in your statement on life experiences and maybe also in a letter of recommendation by someone familiar with what happened.
