Direct Admit Students

Incoming students who, prior to entering the NTP, have already decided to join a particular laboratory enter the program as a “direct admit” with the approval of the admissions committee, the faculty mentor and the Student Funding Committee. Since direct admit students already have a lab and faculty mentor selected, they are not required to do laboratory rotations. The faculty mentor will provide the financial support for the student as documented in the “Student/Advisor Approval” form submitted to the Student Funding Committee for approval.
