The University has one online application. All application material should be submitted online or mailed to the Graduate School address. Once it is received, it is entered into the University system where the various departments can download what they need. Complete instructions for applying can be found here.
The priority application deadline for all programs and departments in the University is January 10 for fall admission and July 1 for spring admission. Some departments or programs may have earlier application deadlines so please contact them early in the application process. Applicants meeting these deadlines will have first priority for full consideration into the programs, as well as for available assistantships and funding.
Admission to the WSU Graduate School is a joint decision between the Dean of the Graduate School and a prospective department or college.
Assistantships (financial aid)
All departments and programs in the University have a March 1 deadline for fall admission offers to applicants, which may include offers of a Teaching Assistantship or Research Assistantship, tuition waivers, and health insurance. Offers are often made before this date and occasionally after this date.
