Second Master's Degree

A student who has been awarded a master’s degree at Missouri State University or at another accredited institution may apply up to 9 hours of graduate credit earned on the first degree toward meeting the requirements of a second degree.  This same policy applies to a student who is admitted to and working on two degree programs at Missouri State University at the same time.  All courses must be approved by the advisor.  Anyone working on an advanced degree at another institution, but who has not completed the degree, may be approved to transfer up to 30% of the total hours required for the Missouri State University program of study.
