As a public, land-grant institution, the University of Missouri offers reduced rates of tuition and fees to Missouri residents. In order to gain residency as an out-of-state student, you must live and work in Missouri for 12 consecutive months immediately prior to the semester you plan to apply.
To apply for in-state status, you must complete a Petition for Missouri Resident Status for Fall 2016 and submit it with photocopies of all the required documentation. All of the residency requirements must be met and the application process must be followed correctly in order for your petition to be approved.
If you receive financial aid or scholarships, contact The Office of Student Financial Aid to determine how changing your residency status might affect your award.
