COJO GRADUATE ADMISSIONS PROCESS

The UW COJO Graduate Program begins its review of applications the first week of March each year for the following fall semester. However, students are encouraged to submit materials as soon as possible to ensure a complete application file.

Study in the COJO Graduate Program begins in the fall semester, with "special circumstances applicants" being admitted for the spring term.

WHAT YOU NEED:

Step one:

Prospective students are encouraged to contact the Director of Graduate Studies, Dr. Michael Brown, at mrbrown@uwyo.edu. Dr. Brown can answer initial questions about graduate study and help with the application process.

Step two:

Prospective students who decide to apply should fill out the online application for admission.  The application will request the necessary information needed to complete the admission process.  Required documents should be sent to the UW admission office as directed in the online application. Required information includes:

  • Official GRE scores
  • Official transcripts (officially translated if foreign)
  • Three letters of recommendation

In addition, foreign students will need to supply:

  • Official TOEFL or IELTS scores
  • Proof of financial support
  • A scanned copy of the passport

ADMISSION CRITERIA

GRE scores (combined verbal + quantitative) of 291 using the new score or 900 using the old score, and a GPA of 3.00 are considered the minimum cutoff levels for potential applicants. With exceptionally high GRE scores or GPA, the department will consider provisionally admitting a student with a lower score on one of the other criteria. For foreign students, the minimum TOEFL scores are 540/76 or IELTS of 6.0. The COJO Graduate Committee reviews applications to determine if candidates are qualified for admission.
