How to Apply
The Department of Pathology grants admission to students with a superior record of achievement in their previous studies with either bachelor's or master's degree. Successful candidates are able to demonstrate potential for success at the graduate level, with significant consideration given to an applicant’s grade point average, background in basic science, and Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores. International students must show proficiency in English with a minimum TOEFL score of 100.
Applications to the Ph.D. programs of the Department of Pathology can be submitted online by completing the WSU Graduate Application Form. Note that applications are accepted for admission to the Fall semester only. Information and instructions for completing the admissions process are available at the Graduate Admissions Office website. It is strongly recommended that applications be made online as paper applications significantly slow down the admissions process. All official documents should be sent directly to the Graduate Admissions Office. If available, unofficial copies of these documents should also be sent to the Graduate Officer for faster review. Please forward the following documents to the Graduate Officer, Todd Leff, Ph.D.
- A completed application
- Personal statement of your goals and objectives for obtaining a Ph.D.
- Three letters of recommendation
- Original transcripts from all colleges and universities attended
- TOEFL (Institutional code: R1898. Departmental code: 0215 Pathology)

The Department of Pathology offers graduate research assistantships, which provide tuition, an annual stipend, and health insurance. No separate application is needed for financial aid.
