BAE Graduate Policies

Admission to an M. S. program requires a degree of Bachelor of Science in biological and agricultural engineering or its equivalent and meeting all requirements for admission to the Graduate School. Graduates from other engineering curricula or a strong physical/biological science curriculum may be admitted provisionally with undergraduate deficiencies specified.

An application for admission to a graduate program in BAE should be made at least six months prior to the start of the term in which enrollment is desired. Additional information on graduate programs and on application for admission to the Graduate School of KSU may be obtained by browsing appropriate Websites and by writing the department.

A minimum TOEFL score of 600 (paper-based) or 250 (computer-based) is required of those students whose native language is not English. The TOEFL score must reflect results of a TOEFL test that was taken within two years prior to the application. Students with a TOEFL score of 550-599 (paper-based) or 213-249 (computer-based) may be granted a provisional admission. The provision may be removed by successfully passing the English Proficiency Test managed by the KSU English Language Program (ELP) upon arrival or after taking appropriate ELP courses.

GRE scores are required by the BAE graduate programs as a supporting evidence of qualification.
