Residency Status (for Tuition Purposes)
In determining a student’s residency for tuition and fee purposes, the University adheres to the policy for determination of student residency established and approved by the Missouri Coordinating Board for Higher Education (CBHE). The University also complies with all applicable federal and state laws and regulations with respect to the classification of veterans and their dependents.
The initial determination of a student’s residency is made by the office responsible for the student’s admission to the University (Office of Admissions for degree-seeking undergraduate students, Graduate College for graduate students, and Academic Outreach for students in nondegree classifications). Students classified as non-residents who wish to apply for reclassification to resident status may do so by submitting a residency application to the Office of the Registrar. Students who are not satisfied with the decision of that office may appeal to the Committee on Residency. Decisions of that committee will be final.
