Graduate Catalog

The catalog is an information guide to Missouri State University. The sections on University Policies, Academic Policies, and Graduate College Policies constitute the “Graduate Student Manual”. All graduate students are expected to become familiar with these policies and procedures, as they describe the rights and responsibilities of graduate students at Missouri State University. It is not possible to cover all potential situations in these pages, so graduate students (current and future) should contact the Graduate College for clarification or more information. Specific departments and graduate programs may have additional policies, procedures, and requirements not covered in these sections.

In addition to general information about the University, the graduate catalog includes a comprehensive and official listing and/or description of the following:

  • academic programs and policies,
  • graduate degree requirements,
  • graduate courses,
  • tuition and fees,
  • faculty and their teaching credentials.

The University publishes a separate undergraduate catalog which includes undergraduate admission requirements, academic policies, degree requirements and faculty.

All requirements, curricula, policies, procedures, fees, courses, and other matters described in the catalog are subject to change by the appropriate action of the faculty, the University administration and the Board of Governors.
