WHY WE’RE UNIQUE… Oklahoma State University works with an alliance of partner universities, Great Plains IDEA (Interactive Distance Paula Alliance). While your home institution is OSU, you will take some courses from a different Alliance university in any given term. You will have an academic adviser at OSU and will graduate from OSU with a Master of Science degree on your transcript.

COST: $590 per credit hour ($1,770 per course) for the 2020-2021 academic year. Cost is the same for both in-state and out-of-state students and does not include textbook costs. 

For a limited time, new FCSED MS students can take advantage of $1,000 scholarships for 2 consecutive semesters!* Apply today to be eligible for this special incentive!

COURSE SCHEDULE: Fall and spring courses are delivered in 16-week semesters, and summer courses are delivered in 4-8 week terms. Students who are employed typically take one to two courses per semester/term. Some will take greater loads.

HOW TO APPLY:  You can start the application process here,


  • A professional resume 
  • Three professional letters of reference, preferably on letterhead 
  • A goal statement: about a page on why you want to complete this degree 
  • There are no required entrance exams (GRE, etc.) and no pre-requisites (other than a Bachelor’s Degree, preferably with a 3.0 GPA or higher; an applicant with a slightly lower undergraduate GPA will be considered for admission on probation which simply means the student needs to earn no grade lower than a “B” in the first two semesters).  

WHEN TO APPLY: We accept students on a rolling basis (can apply to begin fall, spring or summer); however, prospective students are encouraged to apply approximately three months in advance of the term in which they would like to begin to allow faculty and the Graduate College time to review application materials.
