Admissions Information

 

Apply for admission

For Transfer Students

  • Request official transcripts be sent to UMSL from all colleges or universities you have attended.
    • Credit from other institutions is accepted providing it applies toward a transfer degree in the institution where it was earned. Transfer of credit is at the discretion of the Registrar here at UMSL.
    • For information related to how a course from another institution will transfer to UMSL visit the Transfer Credit Equivalency page.
  • The UMSL Veterans Center highly recommends submitting military transcripts to the University for evaluation. In most cases, course credit is generally given for military technical training when the credit recommendations are similar to courses offered at UMSL.
