4. Apply online
All graduate applications to MSU are collected through a centralized application service (CAS). Applicants will create a user login and password. Filter by Missouri State University and find the program you wish to apply to. Admission requirements and program deadlines are included in each CAS application. Applicants need to provide program-required materials, submit official transcripts showing coursework for their bachelor’s degree and any graduate-level work, and pay the application fee through the CAS. Required materials and fees vary by program and by CAS.
5. Request transcripts
Applicants will request official transcripts showing coursework for their bachelor’s degree and any graduate-level coursework to be sent directly to the appropriate CAS. NOTE: Transcripts are not considered official unless they are received directly from the institution where the coursework was completed. Students sending transcripts while coursework for a bachelor's degree is in progress will need to send another official copy showing that they have been awarded a bachelor's degree.
6. Pay the application fee and submit
Application fees vary by program and student type. The application fee is charged for each program that the applicant applies to. Ensure all four quadrants of the CAS application are complete and submit the application.
