Degree and Certificate Seeking Applicants
Most prospective students who want to earn a master’s, doctoral or educational specialist degree should follow this application process. They apply to on-campus, degree-seeking students including:
- New domestic and international applicants
- Former students of Mizzou Online (previously known as MU Online and MU Direct) looking to work toward a degree
- Current and former Mizzou undergraduate students (with the exception of the Master of Accountancy, Master of Occupational Therapy, and the BSIE/Master of Business Administration programs).
- Returning MU graduate students (degree and non-degree seeking) applying for a new degree program who have not been enrolled for one semester or more
