Neuroscience Graduate Program (NGP) at Oregon Health & Science University:
Oregon Health & Science University is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.Accreditation of an institution of higher education by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality evaluated through a peer review process. An accredited college or university is one which has available the necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so, and gives reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation.Accreditation by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities is not partial but applies to the institution as a whole. As such, it is not a guarantee of every course or program offered, or the competence of individual graduates. Rather, it provides reasonable assurance about the quality of opportunities available to students who attend the institution.
This programme may require students to demonstrate proficiency in English.
Requirements for AdmissionThe Neuroscience Graduate Program does not have specific entrance requirements. The Admissions Committee considers several variables, most importantly grade point average, GRE scores, and letters of recommendation. We do not have a minimum GPA, although students with GPAs less than 3.0 require exceptional GREs and letters. Likewise, GRE scores below the required minimum do not disqualify a student, but cause us to scrutinize other parts of the application more closely. Indeed, letters of recommendation from advisors or colleagues who know the applicant in a research environment, not just a class environment, are the most important factors we consider.
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
The 2014/15 entering stipend is $28,500 annually. The program covers tuition and fees (which includes health insurance). New students will also receive a $500.00 moving allowance to assist with relocation.
