2) required for applicants whose first language is not English, even if they have a degree from a U.S. University. The TOEFL score must be less than two years old.
3) Qualified applicants will be invited to participate in interview. The preferred venue is to have the candidate visit MSU. In those cases where the distance is too great, a telephone/skype interview will be scheduled.
We strongly recommend that you submit your application in early fall, but no later than December 15th for consideration for admission for the following fall. Well-qualified candidates are strongly encouraged to submit their applications as early as possible since, for such candidates, there is a possibility of submitting their applications for consideration for doctoral fellowships at either the University or College levels.
