Current Year Fee Schedules

Tuition and General Fees are required costs per credit hour and assessed for all courses to cover educational and other expenses not funded by the State of Missouri.  

Depending upon the specific course(s) or program enrolled, additional fees may apply as follows:  

  • Tuition – Assessed per credit hour for all courses to off-set instructional costs of the course 

Beginning in fall 2023, non-resident domestic undergraduate students will now pay a tuition rate that is the same as the “in-state” rate. Domestic students are American citizens, naturalized U.S. citizens, permanent residents, refugees, or asylees. The same rate is also charged for online students, military and veteran students, spouses, and dependents.

Note: The Redhawks Achievement Award, a scholarship that paid the difference between in-state and out-of-state tuition, has been eliminated, as all domestic students will now pay the same rate.

  • General Fees – Assessed per credit hour to provide funding for student initiatives and services through Student Government. Services to students include, but are not limited to, access to open computer labs, the recreation center, sporting events, etc. 
  • Program Fees – Assessed per credit hour for all courses in select, high-cost programs to off-set additional instructional expenses incurred as a result of offering specific programs of study 
  • Special Course Fees – Assessed per course to cover additional costs or consumable materials required for instruction 
  • Electronic Course Access – Assessed per course for select courses that require the use of electronic course materials during instruction, which are automatically provided to the student 
  • Residence Hall Fees – These can include residence hall rooms, meal plans, and other required fees if residing on campus or enrolling in a meal plan
