Prospective Students

Thank you for your interest in graduate studies in the School of Math. Please see the Graduate Programs pages for a comprehensive description of our offerings, and our Flier for a quick overview. Further you may find this presentation useful: Overview of PhD Programs. See also our annual publication ProofReader for a glimpse into the life of the School of Math. Below is specific information about the admissions process. We look forward to receiving your application!

 

Funding Sources and General Information

All PhD students in the School of Math receive a tuition waiver as well as funding in the form of a Teaching Assistantship (or equivalent) or Research Assistantship, so prospective PhD students do not need to separately apply for funding from the School of Math.  The stipend for PhD students is roughly $29,000 for 12 months.

For more information on demographics, admissions, and time-to-degree for doctoral students in our program, go to Doctoral Student Statistics.  Enter the search criteria for any of the School of Math's doctoral programs there.

Additional information about Graduate Assistantships, fellowships, loans, and off-campus employment options is available on the Office of Graduate Studies site.

Our PhD graduates pursue a variety of careers in academia and industry.  We maintain a list of PhD alumni and their post-graduation employment at our PhD Alumni page.

For MS students, we are currently unable to provide tuition waivers or funding of any kind.

 

Admissions

Comprehensive information about admissions requirements, such as GREs and TOEFL / IELTS, and application procedures, including deadlines and fees, not to mention the Apply today! button. Visit this page to get your application started.  Beginning in Fall 2021, the School of Math will only consider Fall admissions.

NEW: The School of Math will waive the PhD application fee for members of under represented groups in mathematical sciences (including females); please see our Admissions Page for details.

 

Financial Aid

Virtually all students admitted to our PhD programs are offered full financial support including tuition waivers and stipends in the forms of teaching or research assistantships. Several Institute-wide fellowships are also available to PhD students. Masters students, however, very rarely receive financial support.

 

GRE Boot Camp

In the Summer of 2021, the School of Math will host a GRE Boot Camp, especially geared towards students in the Atlanta area.  We plan to hold it remotely in order to provide as much flexibility as possible to the students.  See the course website for materials and more information.
