M.S. Biological Sciences

Course Description

Applying for Graduate School

Admission is a two-step process. Applicants must first meet the general requirements for graduate study as determined by the School of Graduate Studies and Research, and then the specific requirements of the Department of Biological Sciences, which are:

1. An undergraduate degree in biology or closely related field. Deficiencies in the student’s undergraduate training as determined by the Department of Biological Sciences at the time of admission to the program must be removed without graduate credit during the first year of graduate study.
2. Students must submit GRE scores for the general test.
3. International students for whom English is a second language must provide TOEFL scores to demonstrate English proficiency.
4. Students must arrange for a graduate faculty advisor in the Department of Biological Sciences to serve as their major advisor.

As you prepare an application, investigate which Biology faculty conduct research in your areas of interest. Prior to completing your application, contact prospective faculty advisors via email to ask if they are interested in taking new students. Students are seldom accepted into our graduate program without first connecting with a faculty member who is willing to take them on as a student.

New students are usually accepted for entry in the fall of our academic year (mid- September). Applications for fall quarter priority admission and assistantships are due by Feb. 1. Students are encouraged to complete their graduate program in two years (although many good students have continued into a third year).

CWU has small classes with less than 30 students in each class, this encourages a close student-instructor relationship which has been very helpful to me especially during my freshman year when I was trying to get used to the way of life here. CWU offers amazing tuition prices and waivers for international students to enable them to concentrate on school and not have to worry about their financials all the time. The international community here at CWU is very supportive of international students and the advisors are always looking out for the students by exploring new ways to improve the services they already offer.”

The fact of being a small student group make the faculty pay you more attention, being one of their main priorities.”
