How Do I Transfer?

Louie and Redbird

Application to the University of Missouri – St. Louis for full-time or part-time attendance is a simple, three-step process:

Step 1: Fill out and submit a Standard Undergraduate Application to our Office of Undergraduate Admissions. An application can be fully completed online, printed and mailed in, or completed in person at the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

Step 2: Pay the $35 application fee. This can be done online at the time of application, by check or money order submitted to our Office of Undergraduate Admissions by mail, or in person.

Step 3: Submit the necessary Official Transcripts to our Office of Undergraduate Admissions. These must be sent directly from the sending institution. Hand-delivered or faxed transcripts will not be accepted. 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. Those with less than 24 transferable, college-level credit hours at the time of application will also need to submit high school transcripts reflecting composite ACT scores. Some schools may require a completed Transcript Request Form (PDF 20KB) to release transcripts.

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

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 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 its status online with your the login ID and password that you will receive shortly after submission.

International Students will submit their application through the International Students and Scholar Services office and should contact them as soon as possible, (314) 516-5229.
