Online Process

Your residency application will be completed through Cherwell, our digital platform. Your username and password are the same ones you use to access your myZou account.

You’ll need to upload the required documents from the residency checklist to Cherwell. For best results, We recommend uploading all files as PDFs.

Due to considerations for COVID-19, you will also need to provide a written explanation as to any disruptions in your Missouri residency in the past 12 months (for example travel restriction, campus closure, personal safety, etc.). If you have not earned $2,000 of taxable income in Missouri, you will need to include what extenuating circumstance prevented you from doing so in your written explanation.

Once you have uploaded the required documents to Cherwell, you’ll be able to submit them with your application electronically. When you apply, there will be a $250 non-refundable processing fee added to your student account.
