Unconditional Admission:

An applicant who meets each of the following admission criteria may be admitted unconditionally by the graduate faculty of the student's intended major.

  1. A bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution. (The equivalence of foreign degrees is evaluated by the Office of International Services.) The MSU Admissions Office must receive an official transcript, including one on which a bachelor's degree is posted, directly from each institution the applicant has attended.
  2. A GPA of at least 3.0 on the last 60 hours of undergraduate work exclusive of credit hours awarded by a two-year college.
  3. A satisfactory score on the GRE/GMAT/MAT. (The specific admissions test accepted is determined by the student's intended graduate major department.) The MSU Admissions Office must receive official admissions test scores directly from the organization that administers the test.
  4. An undergraduate background judged by the graduate faculty of the student's intended major to be adequate for success in the student's intended major.



A maximum of six graduate credit hours may be transferred into the program with the approval of the Graduate Advisory Committee.
