The UMSL transfer application for full-time or part-time attendance is simple.

Step 1: Submit an Undergraduate Application to the Office of Admissions. If you are unable to complete this application online please call Admissions at 314-516-5451 or visit us at UMSL, Millennium Student Center room 351.

Step 2: Submit the necessary Official Transcripts to our Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Transfer applicants with 24 or more transferable, college-level credit hours at the time of application need only to submit transcripts from all schools where they have attended and/or earned credit. These must be sent directly from the sending institution. Hand-delivered or faxed transcripts will not be accepted.

Transcripts are to be sent to the following address:

Office of Undergraduate Admission
351 Millennium Student Center
One University Blvd.
St. Louis, MO 63121-4400

Some schools may require a completed Transcript Request Form (PDF) to release transcripts. All credentials submitted for admission become the property of the university. Applicants with fewer than 24 transferable credit hours must apply under the requirements for Freshman Admission which includes the need to submit high school transcripts and composite ACT scores.

UMSL also accepts electronically sent official transcripts if delivered through one of the following electronic exchanges: National Student Clearinghouse, Parchment, and eScript-Safe. These should be sent to if an email address is requested.

Once all of the necessary paperwork has been received, it can take anywhere from a couple days to up to two weeks your application to be processed, depending on the time of the year and the volume of applications the Admission Office is receiving. However, you can track your application status online with your the login ID and password that you will receive shortly after submission.
