Requirements & Deadlines

Required Materials

Exemptions to English Proficiency Scores:

Rice seeks highly qualified students for its graduate programs. Beyond objective standards of academic competence, we also look for other, more subjective qualities such as creativity, ambition, and leadership potential.

We do offer rolling admission if space is available. Please contact Lindsey Hodge at if you'd like to apply after the deadline
