GRE Test Requirements
Applicants for summer 2012, fall 2012, spring 2013 or summer 2013 acceptance into graduate programs that require the GRE should take the GRE General Test beginning August 1, 2011. Applicants who are applying for acceptance into graduate programs in business administration, accountancy, management, information systems, and taxation are required to take the GMAT. Please consult the Bulletin of the Graduate School, available on line, or as a CD (available in Office of the Graduate School, Allen Hall, room 116) for information about requirements for degrees and specific concentrations.
Social Security Number Disclosure:
In the admissions process, the Social Security number is used to match test scores and transcripts and not as a permanent student identifier. A permanent, unique MSU ID number will be issued. MSU will not disclose the Social Security number of an applicant to anyone outside the Mississippi Institution of Higher Learning system except as allowed by law, with permission from the individual, or as approved by MSU legal counsel.
Letter of Recommendation
Three letters of recommendation are required to process your application and must be submitted electronically. As part of the on line application, names and email addresses of each person who will supply a recommendation need to be provided. Once you submit your application, an email will automatically be sent to each person identified as a reference and a URL link will be provided to submit the letter. You will receive confirmation that the link has been sent to your references. For each letter of recommendation submitted, you will receive an email confirming this action.
To change a reference or provide updated or corrected information about a reference, please contact the Graduate School at firstname.lastname@example.org. You must include your full name, application Login ID, and the application term. In addition, the name of the reference and respective change in the email address must be included. If you are replacing a previous reference, submit the name of the new reference and respective information as well as the name of the person that is to be replaced. No replacements are accepted after a reference has started a letter of recommendation.
