Admissions Requirements

General requirements common to all graduate degrees at MC

Admission Requirements 

The general requirements common to all degrees are:

  • a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited college or university,
  • a 2.5 undergraduate grade point average (exceptions: MSCP, EDS, Ed.D.),
  • an appropriate undergraduate foundation in major courses for the degree pursued, and
  • an appropriate standardized test score(s) at or above the published minimum(s).

Additional requirements may vary by program.

Application Procedure 

Each applicant for admission must submit the following:

  1. Application for admission.
  2. A $35.00 application fee (non-refundable; must accompany application).
  3. One copy of all the official transcript(s) from previous collegiate work (associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s, doctorate), and any transferable graduate credit. [Official transcripts are those mailed from the college or university directly to the Dean of the Graduate School, Box 4029, Clinton, MS 39058; those brought in by applicant, relative, etc. or marked “issued to student” are not considered official.]
  4. All applicants seeking the Class AA Standard Educator License must provide a photocopy of their Class A Standard Educator License issued from the State of Mississippi. Applications will not be processed without this documentation.
  5. A standardized test score should be filed with your application. Lacking this standardized test automatically results in provisional admission. Non-degree seeking graduate students are exempt from filing standardized test scores unless they are pursuing educator licensure.
  6. Consult specific degree descriptions for additional admissions guidelines.
