Test Scores

Information about required tests is found in specific degree and program requirements.  That information can also be found in the Quick Reference located in the Graduate Catalog. Visit the MSU Testing Center for available test dates and specific test websites. For those submitting the GMAT score use Mississippi State University's institutional code WFT, for those submitting IELTS scores use Mississippi State University – Office of the Graduate School and for those submitting the GRE, and TOEFL score(s) use MSU's institutional code 1480.


Many graduate programs at Mississippi State University have waived the GRE/GMAT requirement. For a detailed list of which programs are requiring it please visit this link! For those programs that do require test scores, there is not an established University minimum. Applicants are encouraged to contact the Graduate Coordinator of the program of interest to inquire about specific score expectations.


Applicants whose native language is not English must submit the results of either the TOEFL or IELTS exam. Prospective students should contact ETS (TOEFL) or IELTS for testing information. The Graduate School maintains a list of countries exempt from English language requirements. Please consult the Graduate Catalog for specific English Language test score requirements.
