Graduate Admissions

The graduate admissions process at Western Michigan University involves the Office of Admissions and your graduate department. 

Admission to a specific graduate program requires acceptance by that academic department. Each department has a designated graduate coordinator who serves as a liaison between the department and graduate admissions and who provides detailed information about program entry requirements, resources, and special opportunities. Department Contact information and deadlines to apply can be found on our Department Deadlines List. Additional phone numbers and links to departmental websites are provided on our list of Degree and Certificate Programs by Alphabetical Order

Students also must apply for graduate program admission through the Office of Admissions using the online application form (fee is now payable online by credit card). In either case, we encourage you to first contact your program of interest to learn of departmental requirements and any supplemental materials needed.

International Students should apply for admission through the Office of International Student Services.

We encourage you to visit our campus, to talk with departmental representatives and tour campus facilities, and to talk with staff at The Graduate College.
