Our Nanoscience admissions follows the UNCG Graduate School admissions process. All application materials should be submitted through the UNCG Graduate School.

Questions about the graduate program should be directed to the Director of Graduate Studies Dr. Dennis LaJeunesse.

Contact Potential Faculty Advisors

Before beginning the application process, we strongly recommend that all prospective students review the Nanoscience department faculty’s research summaries and identify those faculty whose research aligns with your interests.  Then we encourage you to contact that faculty.  This process allows an applicant to ensure that a potential faculty mentor is taking new students and they can inform an applicant of potential projects.  The establishment of a mentor/applicant relationship is also an essential part of the departmental new student review process and priority evaluations will be given to prospective students who have made the efforts to connect with a Nanoscience faculty.  Furthermore, this faculty member will guide prospective students throughout the application process.
