Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Sciences

Graduate Assistantships

All Ph.D. students admitted to the program are offered financial support in the form of teaching or research assistantships. Financial support is offered separately from admittance to the program and is made on an individual basis. Teaching Assistants are expected to devote part of their time to aiding in professional education. Research Assistants may devote their entire efforts to course work and to their own research projects.

Graduate tuition and fees

Graduate tuition and fees can be found on the WSU Graduate School web site. Tuition waivers for in-state and out-of-state are offered to teaching and research assistants and medical insurance is a benefit that comes with the assistantship.

Out-of-state waiver

It is expected that most assistantships will have the out-of-state tuition waived. Out-of-state waivers are awarded for a maximum of 1 year for out-of-state U.S. citizens working toward the Ph.D. and 4 years for international students. After that time, these waivers may be awarded, but cannot be guaranteed. At the present time, if you receive the maximum waiver, you are responsible for payment.
