Admission to ICD requires demonstrated interest in international resource conservation, management and service; an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or better; GRE scores of 153 verbal and 148 quantitative for tests taken after August 1, 2011 and 500 verbal and 600 quantitative for tests taken prior to August 1, 2011; and three letters of recommendation. Applications are accepted to begin in the Fall semester only due to the sequential nature of some courses and are due the previous January 31. Prospective students should review faculty expertise and interests, and to correspond with faculty members whose interests are similar. CFC students are accepted into the ICD program only if a faculty member is willing and able to serve as a graduate advisor.
The University of Montana seeks to provide funding support for ICD students through teaching assistantships. Applicants interested in financial assistance should indicate an interest in serving as a teaching assistant (awarded on a competitive basis) when submitting their application materials.
