Missouri Residency

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 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, including meeting the deadlines in order for your petition to be approved.

 The Spring 2019 petitioning period begins Tuesday, January 22, 2019 and ends on Monday, April 1, 2019.

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.

If you wish to find work on campus, contact the MU Career Center at: https://hiremizzoutigers.com. In addition to helping students find internships and post-graduate employment, the Center helps students find on-campus employment while they are pursuing their degree.

Walk-in hours are held from 9:30-11 a.m. and 2-3 p.m. Monday through Friday.
