Knight Hall 150

Laramie, WY 82071
Phone: (307) 766-5160

Note: Please do not wait to have ALL colleges send official transcripts to Admissions. It is University policy that the
UW Admissions Office require official transcripts from every college you have attended. This includes your undergraduate transcript, AND all colleges that you have transferred coursework in from. This process can take
some time to request, send, receive, and process.
If you attended UW, you do not have to contact UW Admissions Office to send official transcripts to UW. They will know to "pull' them, when you are admitted.
Applications are reviewed, and faculty members invite the qualified applicants to attend the required interview day.
Step 3: Personal Interview Day
Please hold the date (annually the first Friday in February) to visit the UW campus, in Laramie, face-to-face, for an on-campus Interview Day Event with all the applicants. Students will participate in several group activities, a personal interview, and tour the WellSpring Counseling Clinic.
Typically, we invite 1/2 the students to join us in the AM; 8:30 am to 1:00 pm, and the other 1/2, join us from 12 pm to 5 pm. Light refreshements and conversation with current MS and PhD students, will be provided to all students from 12-1 pm.
We simply cannot replicate the face-to-face Interview Day Event via zoom. Please do try to attend in person.
Cohort Selection Process:
Please do allow us up to 6 weeks, minimum, after Interview Day, to meet, review Interview Day feedback, scores, completed application materials, and discuss, and select our cohort for summer. This is a very long process, and it does take time. We may send out 2 rounds of acceptance letters. We appreciate your patience.
UPDATES: If we have any updates to share regarding the cohort selection process, we will post those details here, just fyi.
Please include ALL documents listed below in order for your application to be considered.
