Graduate nondegree (post-baccalaureate) admission transcript requirements

To receive graduate credit at the University of Missouri, students are required to provide a baccalaureate transcript from a regionally accredited institution.

Mizzou Online will accept faxed or photocopied transcripts as temporary supporting documentation. If you are submitting a faxed, scanned or photocopied transcript, you will still need to have an official transcript sent by postal mail or electronic delivery from a secure e-transcript delivery system to Mizzou Online from the institution that conferred the undergraduate degree. The University of Missouri requires international applicants to provide original or certified copies of original educational credentials.

Send to:

All transcripts must include the official degree conferred and the date the degree was awarded. Admission applications will be processed after the transcript is received.

If the undergraduate degree is from MU, or if an official copy of the bachelor's degree transcript is already on file, additional information is not necessary.
