Application fee waivers
An application fee waiver is only available to domestic, first-time freshman applicants. Waivers may be granted to applicants who submit one of the following documents:
- Signed National Association for College Admission Counseling Admission Application fee waiver form
- Documentation of an approved waiver of the ACT registration fee
- Signed Collegeboard College Application fee waiver form
The application fee is waived for students who apply to transfer from the West Plains campus to the Springfield campus and who paid the West Plains campus application fee.
Applying without a credit card
You may still apply online, but if you are a first-time applicant for an undergraduate program you will need to submit the application fee before your application can be processed. To submit a payment without a credit card, mail a check or money order (no cash) to the appropriate office. Contact the appropriate office.
If you already submitted your undergraduate application but didn't submit payment, you can pay your application fee online.
