Applicants lacking one or two undergraduate courses at the time of application may provide a plan to gain competence in these areas in their Statement of Purpose.
These items must be sent through the Graduate College online application.
After the application deadline passes, the faculty will review all of the applications and make recommendations for admissions.

Research and Teaching Assistantships
Most full-time ChE doctoral students in good academic standing are supported financially during their graduate studies. This includes an annual stipend, in-state tuition, out-of-state tuition (if applicable), and health insurance. Support is typically provided by the faculty adviser, using funds from the adviser's research grant or the department wide training grants (see following section), contingent upon the student's satisfactory academic progress and good standing in the ChE program. First-year support may be provided by the college in the form of a fellowship. Students can also apply for teaching assistantships which are offered each semester.
Detailed information about teaching and research assistantships is available in the UA Graduate College GA Manual.
Scholarships and Fellowships
The ChE graduate program encourages all students to seek fellowship and/or scholarship funding. The following resources simplify finding, applying for and managing fellowships and scholarships:
