The Department of Mathematics generally starts new classes of graduate students in the fall semester. However, depending on budget constraints and student qualifications, we sometimes do start students in the spring semester. If you are interested in matriculating in the spring, please contact the Director of Graduate Studies before submitting your application to see if this is a possibility.

Online Application

Please apply online at SMU website for prospective graduate students. Decisions regarding admission will only be made based on a submitted complete application. The GRE exam is required but the mathematics subject test is not (SMU's GRE code is 6660). International students applying from countries where English is not the native language are required to provide scores on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).

If you have any further questions about the M.S. or Ph.D. programs in Computational and Applied Mathematics, please contact the Mathematics Department.
