Graduate students at Missouri S&T are admitted or classified in one of the following categories:
Admission as a regular graduate student is normally limited to those who ranked in the upper third of their baccalaureate graduating class or who have done quality work at the graduate level. For this requirement, a cumulative B average (3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale), or a B average (3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale) for the student’s last sixty credit hours of undergraduate coursework is considered equivalent to an upper one-third standing. If the student’s undergraduate coursework does not meet the standards of the graduate degree granting department, the student may be required to take additional courses, for non-graduate credit, as determined by the chair or designate of the major department. For more specific information about minimum GPA requirements, please consult your prospective department’s website.
Any person not eligible for admission as a regular graduate student may be considered for admission as a probational graduate student. Probational graduate admission is normally limited to those students who ranked in the upper one-half of their baccalaureate graduating class, or who have achieved at least a cumulative 2.75 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) for their entire undergraduate career, or a 2.75 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) for their last sixty credit hours of undergraduate coursework. Minimum GPA requirements for particular departments may be set higher, so please consult your prospective department’s website for more specific information.
Regular and probational student status, as described above, is normally limited to the upper one-third (or minimum 3.0 GPA for the last two years as equivalent) and one-half (or minimum 2.75 GPA for the last two years as equivalent) of graduating class students, respectively. Individual degree programs will use both the GRE and GPA to select students qualified for graduate studies. GPA requirements may be set higher than those stated above.
Any prospective student who wishes to study at the graduate level but who does not intend to pursue a graduate degree may be considered for admission as a non-degree graduate student. Typically, this category of admission applies to, but is not restricted to, individuals who have a job-related need for a particular graduate-level course. Admission to non-degree graduate student status requires an application form, official transcripts, and an application fee, but neither GRE nor GMAT scores are required. Prospective students seeking admission in this category are encouraged to refer to their prospective department’s website for further department-specific information regarding non-degree status admission requirements.
For complete information on each of the above graduate admissions statuses, and for limitations that apply to provisional status and to non-degree status, view the Graduate Catalog.
*Post-baccalaureate students are administered outside of graduate study, and the director of admissions should be consulted for admissions in this category.
