Apply at https://connect.mst.edu/apply/. You'll create an account so you can save your application at any stage and also access your status portal after a decision has been made. Within the application, you will be asked to provide basic contact information, your chosen program and semester/term, a statement of purpose, unofficial copies of your transcript, and GRE and English Proficiency scores (if applicable).
All semester deadlines are listed here.
We do not offer application fee waivers, aside from occasionally as promotions in conjunction with events. Please submit your application or fill out the inquiry form here, to be notified for upcoming events that may offer an application fee waiver.
GRE scores are mandatory for admission to our PhD and Master's programs. However, the GRE is not required to enter a Graduate Certificate Program. For more information on this, visit https://distance.mst.edu/distance-programs/distance-graduate-degrees/computer-science/
The only other exception for GRE waivers is if a student has graduated from the Missouri S&T campus.
Please visit our Graduate Catalog for admission requirements.
For International students, English Proficiency tests (IELTS, PTE, or TOEFL) are required. Learn more about international student admission requirements and procedures here.
We also highly encourage Duolingo tests with a minimum score of 105.
For PhD admission - 3 letters
For MS programs - 2 letters
Graduate Certificates - no recommendation letters are required
For PhD and MS programs, we only accept 4 years of Bachelor's.
All unofficial copies of transcripts and scores can be uploaded to your online application for S&T to review. Upon arrival on campus, you must request that an official copy of your transcript(s) are sent to us directly from your previous University's registrar's office, and all official scores reported directly from the respective testing agency. Once we have received the official documents, we will verify them. If there are any discrepancies between the unofficial and official documents you submitted, Missouri S&T will withdraw admission and you will not be allowed to apply to S&T in the future.
once we have received all your required documents, your application will be reviewed and a decision will be made within 2 to 4 weeks. You will receive an email when a decision has been made. At that time, you will be able to login to your status portal to view your decision letter.
All assistantships are awarded by the academic department or individual faculty members.
We don't offer Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTA) in the first semester for newly admitted students. The department policy for GTA positions is to give highest priority to PhD students after their first semester. The second priority goes to MS Thesis students. After joining the campus, students can discuss with their advisors the possibility of being appointed as a GTA.
For Graduate Research Assistant (GRA) positions, prospective students will need to contact individual faculty. The last priority for assistantship opportunity goes to MS Non-Thesis students.
For fellowships, please visit this webpage.

If you received a scholarship for the Master's program, you will be asked by Graduate Admissions to submit an advanced tuition deposit to secure your scholarships. This will be credited to your first tuition payment and is non-refundable and non-transferrable.
