Three reasons to pick MSU
Hundreds of Illinois students make Missouri State their college home each year because of three simple reasons:
An unbeatable value. Our out-of-state cost is lower than the in-state cost at many Illinois schools. The average in-state cost for tuition, fees, room and board at an Illinois four-year public university was $21,744 for the 2013-14 academic year; at MSU, the out-of-state average cost was $20,816 for the same time.
And the value gets better: Almost half of Illinois students at MSU don’t pay out-of-state fees thanks to our Out-of-State Fee Waiver and scholarships.
