IMPORTANT - PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE FOLLOWING
Students will need to weigh the benefits of MSEP versus any other offered awards, scholarships, and credits, since participants are not eligible for the non-resident tax offset credit for Missouri taxpayers, or to petition for Missouri resident status. If a student opts for a dual major, the student will be required to rank them as primary and secondary majors. Only the primary major will be considered for eligibility in the MSEP.
In considering the rank order of the majors, students should understand that changing a major once they have advanced in their studies, could result in a loss of credit and/or loss of standing in the new major. This, in turn, could add to costs. Therefore, it is recommended that a student use care and weigh the options carefully when ranking their majors.
A student's enrollment will be checked each semester to verify they are in a participating MSEP program. If a student's major has changed to NON-participating program, they will be taken off the MSEP program.
A student must be off the MSEP program for one year before they can apply for Missouri Residency for Tuition purposes. Please contact our office for additional information, if you are considering this option.
Please submit page 1 of your most recent federal and state tax returns which shows your address and that the student is your dependent.
All supporting documents are required to be received by the Campus Residency Officer by the end of the eighth week of the current/future Fall or Spring Semester (by the end of the first week of the current/future Summer Session) for which Missouri Resident Status is sought. Petitions and/or evidentiary material arriving after these deadlines will be considered only for a subsequent semester.
