Fee Waiver Criteria

Your application for admission to Missouri State University requires a $35 application fee. In some cases, students may qualify for a waiver, see below:

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, select "waiver via high school official" from the list of approved waiver options on the application for admission. You will also need to ask your counselor to send a written fee waiver request to Missouri State University via email to admission@missouristate.edu

West Plains students

If you have taken courses as a degree-seeking student on the West Plains campus of Missouri State, you will not be required to pay the $35 application fee. Select "West Plains" from the list of approved waiver options on the application for admission.

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. Select "Applied within the past year" from the list of approved waiver options on the application for admission.
