General UW-Stout Graduate School Application
All prospective graduate students at UW-Stout must follow a standard application process through our Graduate School. Beyond that, each graduate program has specific requirements that must be met to be successfully admitted to the program:
Program-Specific Admission Requirements
Applicants must have an overall grade point average of 3.0 but may be admitted on probationary status if their overall grade point average is less than 3.0. These exceptions are individually negotiated with the recommendation of the program admission committee and approval of the Graduate School.
The majority of applicants will have an undergraduate degree in Psychology; however, we are interested in students from other fields including but not limited to sociology, social work, and business. Students are recommended to have taken at least fifteen credits of psychology-related courses, especially statistics and research methods courses, but this is not a requirement.
Optional Program Application
As part of the Graduate School application, you are required to submit a statement of interest describing your educational and professional background, your career goals, and your interest in the MSAP program. You are also required to submit a resume.
Other aspects of your program application you can optionally submit are letters of recommendation, a writing sample, or GRE scores, but these are not required.
- Letters of Recommendation (up to 3):
- Writing sample (1):
- Research paper or professional document
- GRE Scores
- Will only be reviewed if GPA does not meet minimum GPA of 3.0
Please email application materials directly to the program director. If materials must be mailed (not preferred), send to:
