Admission into our graduate program is dependent upon a faculty member's willingness to act as the student's advisor in addition to basic academic requirements. Applications are completed through the Graduate School at http://gradsch.wsu.edu You will need to complete the application and submit official transcripts from all universities and colleges attended, GRE scores (photocopy is acceptable for evaluation purposes only), Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) for proficiency of non-native speakers of the English Language, three letters of recommendation, and complete the supplemental application and statement of purpose. The $50 application fee (no exceptions) is sent directly to the Graduate School.
Students wishing to be considered for an assistantship should plan on taking their GRE's as early as possible. GRE scores are considered in combination with all other materials submitted. We do not have a specific minimum standard with respect to GRE scores, however, most successful applicants have composite GRE scores of at least 1650, with no single test score falling below 500. Applications for state/federally funded assistantships (if available) are evaluated starting in late January, with the first assistantship offered in February for fall exceptance. Applications for the spring semester are evaluated starting on October 1, with the first assistantship offers mailed on November 1.
