The Graduate School

The Graduate School supports graduate students in every program at the Mississippi State University. We provide assistance in academic matters, advice on University-wide degree requirements, information on the availability of financial assistance including assistantships, fellowships and scholarships, as well as approval for theses and dissertations.

On this website you can find descriptions and contact information for our office staff, links to academic policies, forms, and general resource information. You will also find links to activities designed to enrich your graduate student experience both academically and socially. All of us in the Graduate School wish you success in pursuing your advanced studies, and encourage you to contact us if you need assistance or information.
