Certificate Applicants

For students applying into a graduate certificate program, the following materials (listed below) are required. Be prepared to have the materials ready to be uploaded/entered once you start the application. If you are unable to have all materials ready when applying, you can still start the application and save it.

Please note: we will be unable to process your application without the required documents. 

Required application documents

Complete the Online Application. When you start your application, select "Graduate Online/Distance."

2-3 paragraphs explaining why you are applying for this program.  If a Statement of Purpose module is not available within the application, then please upload it on the status page after submission.

Unofficial transcripts are sufficient for an admit decision.

Upload your transcripts on the online application under the "Institutional Data" section. PDF scans are preferred. Missouri S&T requires official transcripts from all schools attended before a student may register for a second semester. In order for a transcript to be counted as official, it must be sent directly from the school to Missouri S&T. It cannot come directly from a student.

Official transcripts should be mailed to:

Missouri University of Science and Technology
106 Parker Hall
300 W 13th Street
Rolla, Missouri USA 65409-1060

Official digital transcripts can be sent to apply@mst.edu. Please use the name, S&T Operations if a name is needed.

Global Learning would like to help our UMR/Missouri S&T alumnae with their unofficial transcript for your application.  Please contact global@mst.edu if you need your UMR/Missouri S&T unofficial transcript for your application.

Some programs require a resume when applying. Check with your department’s requirements to see if this applies to you. Upload your resume in the "Portfolio" section of your application.  PDF or JPG file formats are preferred.

Some programs require a background check. Make sure to check the admissions requirements of your program, to see if this applies to you.
