University Graduate Program Application Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for admission to graduate programs at Stanford, applicants must meet one of the following conditions:

  • Applicants must hold, or expect to hold before enrollment at Stanford, a bachelor’s degree from a U.S. college or university accredited by a regional accrediting association.
  • Applicants from institutions outside the U.S. must hold the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor’s degree from a college or university of recognized standing. Please see the minimum level of study required of international applicants.

Not Required for Admission to Graduate Programs in Bioengineering

We do not require:

  •  A minimum GPA (grade point average)
  • GRE scores
  • Particular fields of undergraduate/graduate study
  • Other graduate degrees

Once you’ve decided to apply, take time to familiarize yourself with How to Apply.

We invite excellent students from all backgrounds, including those from historically underrepresented groups in engineering, to consider Stanford University for their graduate studies. In making admissions decisions, the Bioengineering Department will comply with the requirements of the law as determined by the Supreme Court of the United States, evaluating each applicant based on their "experiences as an individual—not on the basis of race.” We continue to value a diverse student body that benefits the educational experience of our students and our mission of generating knowledge at Stanford University.
