Graduate Program Information

Effective August 2003, the Missouri General Assembly passed legislation giving Missouri Southern State University the opportunity to offer joint graduate programs in cooperation with other public four-year institutions in the State of Missouri (RSMo 173.005).


These programs are designed to make graduate education accessible to professionals living and working in Joplin and the surrounding areas.

Because these programs are offered in coordination with other universities, policies regarding admissions, financial aid, and registration/records will vary by program.

MSSU also offers free-standing graduate programs.
