Graduate Program Application

Step 1: Identify a faculty member in the Department of Zoology & Physiology whose research interests are similar to yours.   A listing of faculty and their research areas is available through the Department of Zoology and Physiology web page.   Contact the appropriate faculty member(s) and find someone interested in potentially serving as your graduate advisor.

NOTE: WE WILL NOT CONSIDER APPLICATIONS UNLESS A FACULTY MEMBER IN THE DEPARTMENT OF ZOOLOGY AND PHYSIOLOGY HAS INDICATED A WILLINGNESS TO SERVE AS THE STUDENT'S ADVISOR.

Step 2: After you have found a potential advisor(s), email a completed departmental application form, a copy of your curriculum vitae, copies of college transcripts and GRE scores to them.   International students must include a copy of their TOEFL scores.  Arrange to have three letters of recommendation sent to the potential advisor(s).

International students must include a copy of their TOEFL scores. Additional information for international students is available on the UW Admission's Office website.

Step 3. Our graduate admissions committee will review all applications and make decisions on admission based on the availability of funding and a commitment from a faculty member to serve as the advisor. Students recommended for admission will then be asked to fill out an application to the University of Wyoming and pay a non-refundable $50 application fee.

Additional information. The deadline for receipt of all application materials is 15th of January for summer/autumn admission and 15th of September for January admission. Minimum combined verbal and quantitative GRE score for admission is 900 for M.S students and 1000 for Ph.D. students. Minimum undergraduate GPA is 3.0. Additional information is required for international applicants. Students interested in applying to the Program in Ecology should first apply to the Department of Zoology and Physiology. Students interested in the Neuroscience Program should apply directly to that program.
