International Student Scholarships and Agreements
It is the policy of Missouri State University to encourage qualified international students to attend the university. The Board of Governors grants the following without further approval, recognizing there may be deviations from the fee resolution:
- To award scholarships to international students in the amount of seventy-five percent (75%) of non-resident tuition when these students come to the university from a program sponsored by the United States Department of State;
- To award fee reductions to international students up to 75% of nonresident portion of tuition when these students come to the university from a collaborating foreign institution of higher education.
- Allow the vice president for research and economic development and international programs to approve fees for short-term noncredit English Language Institute classes.
- All students must meet admission relevant criteria of the university.
In order to implement the above-referenced policy regarding fee reductions, the provost, the vice president for research and economic development and international programs and/or their delegate(s) shall (1) determine criteria for awarding the scholarships; and (2) negotiate and approve agreements which implement this policy on behalf of the university.
