Abstract: Results are reported from a search for active to sterile neutrino oscillations in the MINOS long-baseline experiment, based on the observation of neutral-current neutrino interactions, from an exposure to the NuMI neutrino beam of 7.07×10207.07×1020 protons on target. A total of 802 neutral-current event candidates is observed in the Far Detector, compared to an expected number of 754±28(stat.)±37(syst.)754±28(stat.)±37(syst.) for oscillations among three active flavors. The fraction fsfs of disappearing \numu that may transition to νsνs is found to be less than 22% at the 90% C.L.
