Domestic students who wish to enroll for a single summer session or a single semester in the Graduate School at Washington State University, and who intend to return thereafter to the graduate school in which they are pursuing an advanced degree, may be admitted as VDGS. Such students must have been officially admitted to another recognized graduate school and be in good standing and actively pursuing a graduate program at present or during the past ten years at that institution. They need not submit a full transcript of credits but must apply for admission.
Admission to Washington State University as a VDGS does not guarantee admission to any particular course of study. VDGS will be permitted to register only in those courses for which they are judged to be eligible by a faculty advisor or the instructor in the course, and if space is available to accommodate registration. Registration of students admitted on this basis shall terminate at the end of the single semester or the single summer session for which the students enrolled. If students later wish to apply for admission to the Graduate School of Washington State University to work toward a degree, they must formally apply and submit complete credentials.
If a VDGS is later formally admitted and enrolls in coursework toward a degree at Washington State University,that student may petition the dean of the Graduate School for allowance of credit for courses taken as a Visiting Graduate Student to apply to the work for such a degree.
