Redhawks Achievement Award

After the Redhawks Achievement Award (RAA), students will effectively pay the same amount as resident students. Students are not charged the Missouri resident rate, but instead receive a financial aid credit to offset the difference between the nonresident and resident tuition rates. May be combined with the President's Scholarship, Copper Dome Scholarship, Residence Life Leadership Award, Visual and Performing Arts Award, Academic Support Center Awards, Endowed and Sponsored Scholarships, and Federal Pell Grants. Total awards value cannot exceed annual cost of attendance.
