*8. ETS/WES Scores (original)

*9. Bank Statement

*10. Affidavit of support

*11. TOEFL

*Non US citizens or residents require special consideration for admission

Students should provide three recommendations from persons acquainted with their academic program and scholastic ability. These recommendations should be forwarded directly to the Director or Chairof the Department in which the applicant intends to specialize. The Department may set higher standardsthan the minimum requirements. These standards are available from the departments.

Graduates of Tuskegee University or from other accredited institutions, which have substantiallythe same requirements for the bachelor's degree, are eligible to seek admission to a program of graduate studies. The applicant should request that transcripts be sent to the Graduate Studies and Research Office.

No action will be taken on the applications without all required documentation. The Admissions Office will coordinate the processing of the application materials with the appropriate graduatedepartment.

The application fee is required and is non-refundable. Requests for graduate fellowships and/orassistantships with recommendations should be submitted to the department in which the studentwishes to specialize. Any offer made to applicants by target units for financial support requiresapproval of the GSR.

GRADUATION RECORD EXAMINATION (GRE)

The policy of the Graduate School of Tuskegee University is to accept applicants with GRE verbaland quantitative scores of 540 and above on paper test (range 200-800). New GRE scores based oncomputer tests (range 130-170) are required after August 2011 with equivalent score of 156). However,applicants with lower GRE verbal and quantitative scores are encouraged to submit their scores forconsideration by the Graduate School. Graduate Record Examination scores more than FIVE YEARSOLD are not acceptable as fulfillment of the GRE requirement.

GRE (http://www.ets.org/) is administered worldwide and in the USA. Information and registrationforms may also be obtained from the Testing Office, 100-E Old Administration Building, TuskegeeUniversity, Tuskegee University, Alabama 36088.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS: TOEFL scores and WES Evaluation

International students who have adequate preparation for graduate study are invited to apply for admission to Graduate Programs. A $35 non-refundable application fee is required. In addition to the otherentrance credentials, applicants whose first language is not English must submit evidence to the GSR Officeof adequate training in the use of English. This ordinarily would mean a score of at least 500 on the paper-based test, or its equivalent on Internet-based test (61) and on computer-based test (173) on the TOEFLexamination. TOEFL scores are considered official when they are sent directly to the Office of GSR fromthe Educational Testing Service (ETS). Other copies are not considered official.

1. A transfer student must satisfy the general orientation requirement. If the transfer
student transfers at least 30 semester hours, only one semester of orientation is
required; otherwise, two semesters of orientation must be taken.
2. A transfer student who has not received transfer credit for Mathematics, English,
and Reading, and who does not present satisfactory records on tests specified by
the University must take Placement Examinations prescribed before enrolling in
any courses.
3. A transfer student must satisfy Physical Education
requirements.
4. A transfer student must be eligible to reenter the institution last attended when
application for admission to Tuskegee University is submitted.
5. A student desiring to transfer to Tuskegee University must be able to furnish the
following:
a. A letter of good standing from the institution last attended.
b. A certificate of high school work covering the Tuskegee University
requirements for admission.
c. An official transcript of the work done in all institutions prior to application for admission to Tuskegee. This transcript should reach the Admissions
Office of Tuskegee University at least one month before the date the
candidate expects to enroll. If possible, a marked catalog showing courses
referred to in the transcript presented should be submitted.
d. A cumulative grade point average that meets at least the minimum
academic retention level set by Tuskegee University as defined in this
document under the section on "Probation, Suspension, and Dismissal".
6. Credit for courses transferred to Tuskegee University is awarded under the normal
conditions prevailing in institutions of higher education:
a. The courses accepted and the number of hours completed determine the
classification of a transfer student.
b. Transfer credit is given only for courses approved by the Dean of the
School in which the student applies for admission. Transfer credit will be
awarded on a course-by-course basis. Courses in which students earned
"D" grades will not be considered for transfer credit.
c. Credit toward graduation is given only for courses that have been approved
for transfer by the dean. The maximum transfer credit allowed to meet
degree requirements will not exceed 80 hours.
d. Courses taken on a pass/fail basis will not be considered for transfer.
e. Courses in which credit was not awarded for the degree will not be
considered for transfer credit.
7. A student who wishes to apply for financial assistance should request each
postsecondary institution attended to forward an official financial aid transcript to
the Tuskegee University Office of Student Financial Services.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
