Semester Application Deadline
Fall 2017 March 1, 2017

The MIS Program has admissions for the fall semester only. We do not admit for spring, and applications are not accepted for spring semesters.

All required application materials must be received by the Graduate College prior to the published deadlines in order to be reviewed for admission. Applications that are incomplete at the deadline will not be reviewed. Complete applications will begin the review process on March 1. Applicants will be notified by email once a decision has been made.

All tests (GMAT, GRE, TOEFL, IELTS) should be scheduled accordingly so that scores arrive prior to the deadline.

Application materials should be submitted using the online application system only. Please do not mail any hardcopies of any documents unless specifically requested by the Graduate College.

Application Requirements

  • Graduate College application form
  • Three names and email addresses for recommenders, included on form.
  • Current resume (as an attachment to form)
  • Statement of Purpose discussing your strengths and weaknesses, and reason(s) for pursuing this degree (as an attachment to form)
  • GMAT or GRE, with scores above 51st percentile in each of the test areas.

Additional information:

Transcripts are required to be submitted as part of the application materials. Unofficial copies can be attached to the application for admissions review, but if an applicant is offered admission to this program, official transcripts are required by the Graduate College as soon as possible. Official transcripts should be sent from the undergraduate institution directly to the Graduate College, either electronically to, or hardcopies mailed to OSU Graduate College, 202 Whitehurst, Stillwater, OK 74078.

Recommendation letters are not required to be submitted on company letterhead. While letterhead is recommended, it is not required. The recommender should include his/her name, title, company name, and contact information on the letter, as appropriate.

Application attachments (resume and statement of purpose) should be carefully proofread and edited before including them with the application. Once an application is submitted, these two items cannot be replaced with updated versions, and all submissions are final.

Test Codes: GMAT (Institution code V0W-5VB-86) or GRE (Institution Code 6546 or R6546)

Please see our list of Frequently Asked Questions for details on application content.

International students: A TOEFL or IELTS score may be required for admission to OSU, as indicated by the Graduate College. If a TOEFL/IELTS is required, then the minimum TOEFL score for admission to our Program is 89 ibt; the minimum IELTS score is 6.5. (Institution code for TOEFL and IELTS: 6546). If neither test is required, then our Program will not require a score for admissions. IELTS scores should be submitted directly to the Graduate College electronically by request from the testing service. Hard copies of these test scores are no longer accepted.
