Bringing college credit with you to MSU
Missouri State recognizes several credit by exam programs and grants credit for certain military experiences, dual credit programs and college courses taken at regionally accredited colleges or universities.

Submitting your transcript
We need your official transcripts from each college – in addition to your high school transcript – before your transfer credit evaluation will be complete.
Request that your official transcript be sent to:
Missouri State University
901 S. National Ave.
Springfield, MO 65897
If you earned college credit through the Missouri State dual credit program, you do not need to request a transcript. Your credit will already be on your Missouri State record, and your advisor will have that information when you come to SOAR (Student Orientation, Advisement and Registration).
See our transfer credit policy for details.
Credit by exam
College credit earned through credit by exam programs may count toward degree requirements and allow you to take advanced courses earlier. We recognize the following programs:
- Advanced Placement Exams
- College Level Exam Program
- International Baccalaureate
- Military Education and Experience
- Departmental Exams
Military credit and credit by examination courses do not carry a letter grade and do not impact your GPA.
We cannot transfer credit from another college or university for a credit by exam course. You must request that original score reports from your credit by exams be sent directly to the office of admissions at Missouri State.
