Residency for Fee Purposes

A student’s residency status for fee purposes is determined at the time of admission according to state policy (Code of State Regulations 6CSR10-3.010). Copies of the residency policy and petitions for change of residency status are available on request from the Office of Admissions. Petitions must be submitted to the Office of Admissions prior to the beginning of the trimester for which the change is desired. A student who qualifies for Missouri residency maintains that residency as long as he/she is continuously enrolled.

The nonresident portion of the student fee may be credited in an amount equal to the actual Missouri income tax paid by the nonresident student or custodial parent for the previous calendar year. Students covered by this policy remain classified as nonresidents and must submit the Missouri income tax return to the Bursar/Cashiering Office to receive this credit.
