Applying to an Accelerated Master's Program
Get an early start
Jump-start your graduate education with an accelerated master’s program, which allows Missouri State undergraduates to begin taking graduate course work as they complete the work for a bachelor's degree.
Accelerated master's programs
Graduate programs at Missouri State University offering an accelerated option are:
You must apply and be admitted to the accelerated master’s program by both your academic department and the Graduate College before enrolling in any graduate courses. Visit with your advisor to discuss the application process for your area.
You will be fully classified as a graduate student upon completion of your bachelor’s degree. Therefore, you must submit your graduate application for the semester following the completion of your undergraduate degree.
To register for classes, you must complete a Mixed Credit form and submit it to the office of the registrar in Carrington Hall 320 at the time of registration.
Depending on the program, a maximum of 12 hours of graduate credit will apply toward completion of your undergraduate degree.
