Graduate Certificate to Master's Degree Applicants

For students who have successfully earned a Missouri S&T graduate certificate (with a B or better in each certificate course) and now wish to continue on for the corresponding master’s degree. 

You are encouraged to apply to continue with your master’s degree program during the last semester of your graduate certificate program.

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. S&T will be unable to process your application without having the requirement documents. Please call or email the Office of Global Learning (573-341-6591) with any questions or concerns about the process.

*Please be sure to include your Missouri S&T Institutional Data when filling out your certificate to master's application. You can upload an unofficial S&T Transcript into your application. An unofficial transcript can be requested through Joe’SS, here's a step-by-step tutorial.
