Programs at Other Universities
Reciprocal Programs
Unless otherwise stated, students interested in one of the following programs should contact the admissions office at the school where the program is offered.

The University of Nebraska in Lincoln offers programs for a limited number of Missouri residents in architecture, community and regional planning, construction management, and actuarial science where students may pursue bachelor’s degrees.

A cooperative agreement exists between Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville and UM-St. Louis which permits students of one institution to take courses at the other institution as a regular part of their academic program. For further information consult the registrar’s office or the dean’s office.

The following programs are offered to Missouri residents at various Kansas universities:

Humanities University of Kansas, Lawrence, with an M.A. in Oriental languages and literature, and a B.A. and M.A. in Slavic languages and literature (not Russian). A Ph.D. in Slavic languages and literature is also offered.

Grain milling and technology Kansas State University, Manhattan, with a B.S., M.S., or Ph.D. in bakery science and management, feed science and management, or milling science and management.

Horticulture Kansas State University, Manhattan, with a B.S. in horticulture therapy.

Joint Programs in Law and Dentistry
The University of Missouri-St. Louis and the University of Missouri-Kansas City provide joint programs in law and dentistry for academically able students who are committed to public service. These special programs are designed to serve students seeking a career in public-service law or students who wish to practice dentistry in medically underserved communities.

UM-Kansas City will hold a reserved seat in its School of Law or in the School of Dentistry for qualified UM-St. Louis entering freshmen and make it available to them after they complete the required undergraduate studies at UM-St. Louis.

Study Abroad Programs
The University of Missouri-St. Louis is committed to broadening students' understanding of different cultures and preparing them for the global community in which we live. One of the most successful ways of achieving this "global mindset" is to study overseas for a summer, semester, or year program. Spending time abroad as a student is an enriching experience both academically and personally, providing students with the opportunity to study within a different culture.

The Center for International Studies provides UM-St. Louis students with opportunities to study at over 80 different universities in more than 30 countries around the globe. Through individual advising at the center's Study Abroad Office, students can find the program best suited to their personal, academic, and career goals. Internship possibilities are also available for qualified students.

Fees and Financial Aid
The cost of the program depends on the services provided and the country and city of study. For most programs, participants continue to pay UM-St. Louis fees plus airfare, room and board, and spending money. Students are usually housed in dormitories or are assisted in finding apartments. In most cases, students are able to apply financial aid to a study abroad program. Study abroad scholarships are available for qualified applicants through the Center for International Studies.

Generally, applications are due in mid-February for summer and fall semesters, and the end of September for winter semester. Some programs require application two semesters prior to participation. Students should plan to spend at least one or two months researching a program before applying.

Participant selection is based on academic achievement, faculty recommendations, approval of the proposed course of study via the department/divisional advisory process, and familiarity with or willingness to learn the foreign language of instruction. Most programs are designed for undergraduate students in their junior or senior years of study; however, a limited number of programs for freshmen, sophomores, and graduate students are available.
