Apply for Admission

All application material should be submitted online or mailed to the Graduate School.

Admission to Washington State University Graduate School is a joint decision between the Vice Provost for Graduate and Professional Education of the Graduate School and your prospective department. Be sure to check with your prospective department to see if they are still accepting applications.


Priority application deadlines are:

  • January 10 for fall admission
  • July 1 for spring admission

Some departments may have earlier application deadlines; contact your prospective department 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.


Departments generally make assistantship offers during the admissions process. Offers may include a Teaching Assistantship or Research Assistantship, tuition waivers, and health insurance.
