Students unsure of their admission status should contact Graduate Admissions at gradapps@grad.msstate.edu.

All fully admitted students should consult with their graduate advisor prior to registering for classes to ensure courses they wish to take will help fulfill degree requirements. Courses taken without proper advisor approval may or may not be applied to a student's program of study. The graduate advisor will release students for registration.
