Applicants must meet the entrance requirements of the Graduate Schools at UTA and UT Southwestern for admission into the Joint Graduate Program in Biomedical Engineering. Please see the graduate catalogs for details and the specific requirements of BME program.
Application can be made to either institution, with the admitting institution designated as the "home" campus. However, domestic students entering the program through UTA have the option of registering as either part-time or full-time students. Domestic students who enter the program through UTSW are expected to register for full-time course loads throughout their graduate studies. A full course load is a minimum of nine graduate credit hours during the fall and spring semesters and six credit hours during the summer. International students must register for a full course load, regardless of "home" campus status.
Other factors influencing home campus selection are personal in nature, especially living arrangements and small differences in registration fees. Students fulfilling any deficiency course requirements must enroll at UTA. Part-time students must enroll at UTA, although they may take a total of nine credit hours as a "Special Student" at UTSW.
