Additional Information

Applicants requesting financial assistance through GRA or GTA should apply for the Fall semester. Current George Mason University students intending to apply to the PhD CS program and those who are not requesting financial assistance in the form of GRA or GTA may apply for Fall semester or Spring semester.

The GRE General Test is not required for admission review but is strongly recommended for applicants who are internationally-educated and have not obtained an academic degree from U.S. accredited institutions. Applicants who wish to submit GRE scores should start the application process and email to request that their application be held from review until the official GRE results arrive. GRE results must arrive by the application deadline in order to be considered for admission review.
