Applications for entrance in Fall 2015 are now being accepted. We will begin to evalute applications January 15, 2015. If your application is not received by then, it may not be evaluated.
Offers are usually made between February and April 15. All applicants are considered for department support via research assistantships, teachings assistantships, and merit-based scholarships. Virtually all graduate students are supported for the academic year and in many cases during the summer term as well.
There is no minimum GRE or GPA requirement. However, to be competitive for assistantships and scholarships, students need a GPA of at least 3.0, a combined verbal and quantitative score on the GRE of at least 300, and an analytical writing score on the GRE of at least 3.5.
You are highly encouraged to browse our department website and contact professors with interests that seem aligned to your own. In particular, we point to the student research opportunities webpage. We are always happy to discuss available projects and funding, so please contact us if you have questions.
Our department has several faculty who are affiliated with the Program in Ecology (PiE). Students interested in seeking a PhD through PiE are required to submit a letter of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org identifying which faculty member they intend to work with, and why they would like to be part of the program. More information is available here (www.uwyo.edu/pie/prospective).
Call or email Lexi Edwards, our Academic Coordinator, if you have any questions.
