CHECKLIST for Completing the Graduate Application to UC Davis
- Submit ONLINE APPLICATION at Graduate Studies website (includes 'Personal History Statement' and 'Statement of Purpose')
- Pay APPLICATION FEE: see Graduate Studies website for current fee costs. This fee cannot be waived. Your application will not be processed unless you have paid this fee
- Arrange for ETS to send your official GRE (General Test) and TOEFL (all international students) to the Department of Statistics (please note, school code: 4834, TOEFL dept code: 59, GRE dept code: 0799 for biostatistics or 0705 for statistics). If you earned a bachelor's or higher degree from a university where English is the sole language of instruction, you are entitled to a waiver of the TOEFL/IELTS examination. In most cases this waiver is processed automatically. However, if you believe you may be eligible for a waiver and the English proficiency examination requirement currently appears in your application, please contact our office.

- Upload your unofficial transcript online via the application system. You will be sent a message upon submission of the application showing you how to do so. Please do not send official transcripts to the department - these will be requested once you have been admitted.

Early submission of materials is advised, especially if being considered for financial assistance.
