Admission Information for Graduate Study in Chemistry

The Graduate School at Binghamton accepts students for the MA, MS and PhD degrees. In chemistry, there is also a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree available through the Graduate School of Education. The graduate program in chemistry considers students on a rolling basis throughout the year. Both September and January admission is possible. Admission to the graduate program is based on transcripts, letters of recommendation and GRE scores. The subject test in chemistry is also requested. Special considerations are also taken into account.

Language and GRE requirements

International students, whose native language is not English, are also required to submit their TOEFL score; applications with a TOEFL under 80 (internet-based test) will not be considered. You are encouraged to apply online at the Graduate School. More detailed information on minimum TOEFL requirements can be found at:

The admission of international students is highly competitive. To be competitive you will need a TOEFL score of at least 90 (internet-based test), and a combined verbal and quantitative GRE score of over 1200 (old system) or 310 (new system effective Nov. 2011). A high score on the subject test will also help.
