Our deadline for submission of all application materials to PASS is September 1.

Once your application and supporting materials are received by PASS, they will be forwarded to our Admissions Committee for review.  If selected for an interview, you will be notified in writing and be required to submit the WVU Graduate Program Application and remit the associated $50.00 application fee.  While an invitation to appear for an interview should not be construed as evidence of acceptance, it is a requirement that assists the committee in its selection process.

If you have any questions regarding our program or application process, please contact our Program Assistant.
