Fee Waiver Criteria

Your application for admission to Missouri State University requires an application fee. In some cases, students may qualify for a waiver of the application fee.

Current high school students

Speak with your high school counselor, if you believe you qualify for a fee waiver. Most high schools determine eligibility based on participation in the free or reduced lunch program.

If you qualify, ask your counselor to send the fee waiver request to Missouri State University. 

West Plains students

If you have taken courses on the West Plains campus of Missouri State, you qualify for a fee waiver.

Admitted but non-enrolled students

Domestic degree seeking undergraduate or graduate students that have paid the application fee within the past year but did not enroll will not need to pay again.

Adding or changing a program

Currently enrolled domestic degree seeking graduate students who want to add an additional graduate program or want to change their current program will not need to pay another application fee.

Applying with a fee waiver

If any of the above apply to you, please proceed with the online application. The “Select a Waiver” page of the application will allow you to indicate the waiver for which you qualify.
