The Mathematical, Computing and Information Sciences Department offers courses leading to the Master of Science (MS) with a major in mathematics. Students pursuing graduate degrees in secondary education who meet Mathematical, Computing, and Information Sciences Department admission requirements (described below) may take mathematics courses as their teaching field.

Applicants for the MS with a major in mathematics may be permitted to enroll for one semester of graduate course work while completing all other general application requirements.

Applicants for the MS with a major in mathematics must submit all of the following documentation to the College of Graduate Studies, Jacksonville State University, 700 Pelham Road North, Jacksonville, Alabama 36265-1602, to be considered for admission:

- Completed JSU Graduate Application for Admission (http://www.jsu.edu/graduate/grad_app.html)
- Non-refundable $35.00 application processing fee
- Official transcripts(s) from all colleges/universities with degrees posted. (Students who have previously attended JSU do not need to request a transcript from the University.)
- Official tests scores on the General Test of the GRE or the MAT.
- Three “Graduate Reference Forms” completed by individuals who can provide qualitative assessment of the applicant’s potential for success in graduate course work. This form is available in the office of the College of Graduate Studies or online at http:///www.jsu.edu/graduate/student-resources/index.html (scroll down the page of the previous link and look under forms).
- If English is not the applicant’s native language, the applicant is required to submit an official TOEFL score report, an IELTS score report or a PTE score report.

In addition to meeting general admission requirements of Graduate Studies, an applicant must have completed at least 12 semester hours, or equivalent, beyond the three course JSU calculus series or equivalent, including at least one course equivalent to MS 415, Advanced Calculus I, and one course equivalent to MS 441, Abstract Algebra I.

Applicants must meet one of the following admission formula requirements. For purposes of computing the undergraduate GPA, a 4.0 grade-point scale is used. The plus (+) and minus (-) grades from undergraduate transcripts are not used in calculating the GPA. Please use the following concordance tables when figuring your formula. GRE Verbal & Quantitative Concordance Tables; http://www.ets.org/s/gre/pdf/concordance_information.pdf ; MAT Scaled Score Conversions http://www.csustan.edu/advstd/mat.html

A maximum of six hours of graduate credit may be transferred; however, courses transferred must be applicable to the student's program of study.
