How to Apply

The Department of Statistics at Western Michigan University uses the University online application process.


WMU has a new online graduate application system that allows all students (domestic and international) to submit required information into one system. General application information for the University, as well as specific requirements for individual programs, are captured into this system.

Teaching assistantship application

If applying for a teaching assistantship, the additional requirements such as three recommendation letters and a list of all previous mathematics and statistics courses may be submitted within the online application system. If desired (e.g., for students already admitted to WMU), the application for teaching assistantship may be done separately.
