Stony Brook is proud of its productive research teams in various fields, and reminds graduate applicants that only ambitious, determined students will make the cut.

Because Stony Brook is committed to fostering the brightest students, the university understands how important it is for students who are struggling to receive the help they need. Student services, such as academic and research workshops, individual tutoring, a health clinic, career services, academic counseling, financial aid assistance, and counseling all help relieve stress for a struggling student.
