UMSL is known for its high-quality and high-value education. Our students benefit from tuition rates that are among the lowest in the region. And, all undergraduate students attending UMSL who are Illinois residents from any Illinois county — and graduate students from select metropolitan counties in Illinois — get the same low in-state tuition rate as Missouri residents. Be sure to explore your degree program carefully as specific programs may include supplemental fees that support your learning and instruction.
