For prospective students
Graduate applications and admissions
If you are a prospective student considering the Colorado School of Mines for graduate-level study, you are encouraged to visit the Office of Graduate Admissions for additional information BEFORE applying to CWP. The Office of Graduation Admissions can provide you with an overview of CSM graduate school application processes, as well as graduate academic programs, online application, graduate school application deadlines and arrange to visit the Mines campus.
