The faculties of individual degree programs do reserve the right to use more stringent cumulative GPA requirements when evaluating transfer applications than Missouri S&T's general minimum GPA requirement. Department degree program entrance requirements can be found here.

Missouri S&T accepts college-level non-remedial coursework from all accredited institutions. How credit will be applied to a Missouri S&T degree program is at the discretion of the Registrar's Office.

Many high school students face the decision of where to begin their college career. Trying to make that final decision of where to attend college can be difficult, but we recommend that high school students who are unsure of their plans to go ahead and apply.

Planning tips
  • Apply for admission and financial aid to both Missouri S&T and the two-year or four-year school you may attend.
  • If finances are an issue for you, early application will help determine what type of assistance is available from Missouri S&T. We do offer generous scholarships for transfer students, but freshman awards do tend to be larger. Compare what is available if you apply as a freshman.
  • Visit both institutions and take some time to speak to an admissions counselor regarding both direct admission and transfer options.
  • If you decide to attend elsewhere first and then transfer to Missouri S&T, it is very important to email us at transfer@mst.edu to enroll in the Transfer Assistance Program so we may provide advice that will help you transfer with no loss of credit.
