Diversity in Student Representation

We currently have 35 graduate students from diverse ethnic/racial backgrounds representing twenty percent of the graduate student population in the Department. If you wish to contact minority graduate students in Psychology, please contact: psychdsc@uw.edu


The Department relies upon traditional criteria (e.g., GPA, letters, statement of purpose, etc.) in its evaluation of applicants. However, we take a holistic approach when considering students’ applications. As a result, the students admitted to the Department have exhibited a wide range of performance on traditional criteria.
