If you are a first-time UMSL graduate student, you will have the opportunity at the end of Part 1 of the application to pay the application fee ($50 for U.S. applicants, $40 for international applicants) online on our secure server with a MasterCard, Visa, Discover card, or your checking or savings account (echeck). If you are not prepared to pay the fee now, you can complete Part I and return later that same day to log in with your user ID and password to pay the application fee. If you complete Part I and do not pay the fee online that same day, your application will be submitted and you will be required to pay the application fee by credit card over the phone at 314-516-8675 or toll-free at 888-462-8675 or pay by check payable to UMSL and mail to Admissions Office, 351 MSC, University of Missouri-St. Louis, One University Boulevard, St. Louis, MO 63121. Applicants to the Graduate School are only required to pay the application fee once.

McNair Scholars:  The University of Missouri-St. Louis welcomes McNair Scholars by waiving the application fee.  Please identify yourself as a McNair Scholar in the Statement of Purpose on the application and then request that your program director confirm your status in an email to Graduate Admissions.  You may also be eligible for one of our doctoral recruitment awards.
