You will be contacted within 10-14 days regarding the status of your admission. You can also return to this site and check on your application status at any time.
On the first page, you will be asked to create a unique user ID and password. By creating a secure user ID, you will have the opportunity to save your application at any point and return later to complete it. Or, you can complete the entire application at once. It might be a good idea to write down your user ID and password for reference later.
- Paying your application fee ($35 for U.S. students, $40 for international students): You will have the opportunity to pay the application fee online on our secure server with a MasterCard, Visa, Discover card, or your checking or savings account (echeck). If you are not prepared to pay the fee now, you can return later that same day to log in with your user ID and password to pay the application fee.
- After you complete your application and pay your application fee, you will receive an e-mail confirmation that shows you have paid your application fee. Within 1-2 business days, you will receive an email with your SSO ID (username) and how to create a password to login to MyView. You will use MyView to check your application status or to see what items are outstanding.
Graduate application fee is $50.
Also, depending on the timeline and requirements for your specific program, the application process may take months to complete. Please be patient as we process your application materials. You may check your status online at myview.umsl.edu.
