If any piece of required information does not reach us by the appropriate deadline, your application may not be considered. Incomplete applications are not returned to the applicant. It is your responsibility to ensure that all material is received by the Office of Graduate Studies, College of Arts and Sciences, by the deadline. You may not be able to control directly when requested transcripts and GRE scores are mailed, thus it is especially important to request such material well in advance of the deadline. Georgia State University is an equal educational opportunity institution and, as such, students are admitted and treated without regard to race, sex, age, religion, color, national origin, sexual orientation, or disability. The University is in compliance with the regulations for Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
The institute expects that graduate students will devote themselves to their studies full time. Accepted Ph.D. students typically receive a stipend and tuition waiver throughout their studies, at a competitive level consistent with their skills and accomplishments. Typically, support involves both research and instructional responsibilities. Students may be eligible to receive funding from other Programs.
