How to apply

Because graduate students work closely with faculty in pursuing their research, you should line up a potential mentor before applying. Explore our faculty research pages to find a faculty member whose research in Mathematics fits with your own, then contact that person to discuss applying to graduate school at WSU Vancouver.

All students applying to the M.S. or Ph.D. programs in Mathematics must submit their materials to the WSU Graduate School through their online application portal. However, students who wish to apply to work with WSU Vancouver-based faculty must follow the instructions on our how to apply page.


Research and teaching assistantships are available to support graduate students working toward a Ph.D. in Mathematics on the Vancouver campus.
