Missouri State family celebrates their graduate at the fountain.

Join our family

Becoming a Bear is an exciting time for a student and the whole family.

We will help you navigate through this journey no matter if your Bear is the first person in your family to go to college, or the 50th family member to step onto our campus.

Your student’s success is important to us.

You can participate in parent and family programs that share helpful information, allow you to meet other Bear families and give you a no-stress way to communicate with Missouri State employees.
