Non-Degree Seeking Applicants

For students applying directly into a graduate-level course, 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.

Approvals from your professor and graduate studies specialist are required to enroll in specific classes. You will still need to meet all prerequisite requirements specific to the courses in which you would like to enroll.

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


Required application documents

Complete the online application. When you start a new application select "Graduate Online/Distance".

2-3 paragraphs explaining why you are applying for this program. Statement is to be submitted electronically on the online application; you'll copy and paste it into the provided text box.

Unofficial transcripts are sufficient for an admit decision.

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

Official transcripts should be mailed to the Global Learning Office:

Missouri University of Science & Technology
Office of Global Learning
320 W. 12th St.
G8 Norwood Hall
Rolla, MO 65409

Up to nine hours of graduate coursework taken as a non-degree student may be counted toward a Missouri S&T graduate degree or graduate certificate program, if applicable. Furthermore, if a student initially enrolls as a non-degree student and is subsequently accepted into a graduate degree program before completing a particular course, that course may be accepted toward the graduate degree program subject to approval by the student’s advisor, department chair, and the dean of graduate studies.
