The Office of Graduate Student Affairs, and the BCMB and CMP graduate programs collaborate on recruitment efforts and inquiries. The Office of Graduate Student Affairs and BCMB graduate program represents the CMP and other JHU Graduate Programs in recruitment efforts at the national and international levels, including the recruitment of underrepresented students.

We seek to recruit excellence
The CMP Admissions committee takes a balanced approach in evaluating applicants. A strong academic record and stellar test scores are important factors that can be re-enforced or balanced by excellent prior research experience as discussed in the applicant’s personal statement and letters from research mentors. Our typical class size is 2-3 students.
December 8 is the deadline for the receipt of ALL application materials for August admission into the CMP program.
The requirements for the application are as follows:
- Application with Personal Statement
- Application Fee
- Official undergraduate Transcripts
- Three Letters of Recommendation
At the time of entry into the program, you must have completed a Bachelor’s or higher degree from a qualified university or college. Regardless of the degree major, applicants are expected to have taken physics, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, and calculus.
Foreign applicants must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language Exam (TOEFL).
NOTE: GRE scores are no longer required and if submitted, will not be used in our decision-making process!
