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

An application fee waiver is only available to domestic, first-time freshman applicants. Waivers may be granted to applicants who (1) submit a signed National Association for College Admission Counseling Admission Application fee waiver form, (2) submit documentation of an approved waiver of the ACT registration fee, or (3) submit a signed Collegeboard College Application fee waiver form.

Please submit required documentation for fee waiver eligibility to the Office of Admissions via email: admission@missouristate.edu. You may also fax to 417-836-3154.

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.
