Applications for the M.S. and Ph.D. in Plant Pathology should be completed through the Office of Graduate Studies at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  Once you have applied and been accepted, the Plant Pathology team will work with you on the next steps, course scheduling, etc.

Application Deadlines:  All required materials for the application (including letters of recommendation) must be received no later than April 15th for Fall 2020 semester admission and no later than August 31st for Spring and/or Summer semester admission.  Application review will not begin until all transcripts, application fees, and other supporting documents are received.  To be considered for a departmental GRA, it is recommended that students apply for the Fall semester admission, although students applying for Spring and/or Summer admission will be given consideration for GRA support, as available.

We are proud of our graduate program and hope the foregoing comments concerning our department and the University will help you reach a decision to apply to the University of Nebraska for graduate work.
