Graduate Application & Admission

Applications to the 'French in Comparative Literature' graduate specialization:

Applicants need to fill out the graduate application for the Program in Comparative Literature, accessible online at the Graduate Division website, and then send the application electronically to the Graduate Division. The Program in Comparative Literature is then notified and can access your application information. Please see www.complit.ucsb.edu for further information.

GRE scores take approximately 2 to 3 weeks from the test date to reach the University.
