Fees and Refund Information for Fall Admits

Student fees

The $125 confirmation fee covers a new student's cost to attend two-day SOAR sessions. This includes:

  • Required overnight housing on day one
  • Lunch and dinner on day one and breakfast on day two
  • Publications, materials, and other administrative costs 

Additional fees

Family members may attend SOAR for a fee of $30 per person. Due to limited space, we can accept up to two (2) family members per student.

Additional student accommodations are available the night prior to your SOAR session for a fee of $25.  

These fees must be paid online at the time of session registration. Payment will be required to confirm your registration. 

Payment options

Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express credit and debit cards and electronic check (e-check) payments are accepted. A 2.75% convenience fee is applied to all credit and debit card payments; e-check payments do not incur this fee. Learn more about this fee.

Cancellations and refund requests

Students who wish to withdraw their admission offer and cancel their SOAR session should complete the Withdraw My Admission Offer form. More information is available under the "Request a refund" heading of the confirmation fee page.

Students who wish to cancel their family members' reservations or their additional night of accommodations and receive a refund must submit a cancellation request in writing to newbears@missouristate.edu within five business days of their SOAR session. Refund requests made within five business days of your SOAR session will not be granted, as resources will have been reserved and expended on behalf of the attendees.

Cancellation requests should include the following information to aid in processing:

  • Student's first and last name
  • BearPass number (Missouri State student ID number)
  • Reservation aspects to be cancelled (i.e. family members' reservations and/or additional night of accommodations)
    • Names of family members whose reservations should be canceled
