To best meet the needs of our students, WMU uses a more decentralized approach for our graduate applications. In addition to a common university graduate application and transcript submission requirement, individual programs have established their own application deadlines and supplemental application requirements.
Please be aware that the decision to admit a graduate student is made by the individual academic department, not WMU’s admissions office. The individual department will send you written notification of the decision regarding your application.
Application Materials - The graduate admissions process at WMU involves two partners: the Office of Admissions and the department which houses the graduate program of interest. All applicants must complete the University Graduate Application, which requires students Some application materials must be sent to both, although specific admission is granted by the academic department.
Here are the key pieces that you need to be aware of:
Application Deadlines - Application deadlines vary by program, and not all programs admit students for all semesters. Please review the website of the program you are interested in for specific departmental application deadlines.
If you have any questions, contact your program of interest, or the Graduate College. We are happy to assist you.
