Science Talent Expansion Program


Below are links to the application and referral forms for potential freshman STEP students. Forms are available in PDF and Word formats. Please download the appropriate form(s) and send a completed copy via mail or email to Colleen Falconer, STEP Program Coordinator (see below).

Freshman applications are accepted throughout the year. We begin reviewing applications in late April or early May for the following academic year. Students will be notified of acceptance beginning in May and into June (before the CWU Discover Orientation dates) and until the cohort has been filled. Please make sure that you complete and submit your FAFSA by the March 1st priority deadline to be eligible for STEP financial aid opportunities.

Students transferring to CWU with an AA degree are eligible to participate in the STEP Transfer Program. No application form is required, but interested students must contact the Program Coordinator by email or phone (509-963-3002), before Summer Orientation.

The STEP application form is to be used by all incoming freshman who are applying for STEP.

Please send completed forms and further inquiries to:
