About the Graduate School
Graduate applicants must submit an electronic application that requires about 15-20 minutes to complete. Once completed, program faculty conduct detailed reviews of the application packets and recommend whether to admit each applicant. You can return to the application site and check on your application status at any time.
You will need the following while completing the application: permanent address information, attendance and graduation dates of previous colleges, test dates and scores of any required standardized admissions testing (GMAT, GRE, etc.) and emergency contact information.
Before clicking on the appropriate application for admission, please clear your cache.
- 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.
- After you have completed your application and paid your application fee, you will receive an e-mail confirmation that provides additional details such as contact information and a confirmation number which you can refer to if you ever need to call us with questions about your application.
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.
UMSL Alumni or students that have previously attended UMSL: Your undergraduate/graduate records are accessible by Graduate Admissions and you do not need to send an UMSL transcript or resend previously submitted final transcripts.
It is recommended that you close all other browser tabs and windows before starting the application. If you experience any problems, please clear your cache (delete your cookies) and try to continue.
