Missouri Residency

In general, to qualify as a resident of Missouri for the purpose of paying in-state fees, a person must be a permanent resident of the US or a US citizen. In addition, the person must show an intent to make the state of Missouri his or her permanent home. The person must also have been a resident of Missouri for at least 12 months, have worked in Missouri or be the dependent of a person who meets those conditions. Contact the Missouri Residency Office for the specific criteria which must be met to qualify for in-state fees.

Financial Assistance (Pell Grant) for Missouri Residents

Missouri residents may be eligible for U.S. federal government financial aid (a Pell Grant) to apply to the cost of studying in the Intensive English Program. This aid may be in the form of loans (money which must be repaid) or grants (money which is given to a student and does not have to be repaid). For more information, contact the Student Financial Aid Office.
