Tuition Assessment Residency Requirements Fee Reassessment / Dropping Course(s)
The Missouri tuition charge is $400.50 per credit hour, but is reduced by a limited Missouri resident undergraduate tuition Presidential waiver of $21.50 to $379.00 per credit hour. This waiver is the result of university and state budget arrangements and may not continue in the future. The Illinois tuition charge is $400.50 per credit hour, however Illinois and Metro undergraduate students will receive an UMSL scholarship of $21.50 reducing the tuition charge to $379.00 per credit hour.

The fee estimator website allows students to estimate their out of pocket expenses needed for a single semester. It will also estimate the monthly minimum payment options for each due date. The estimate is based on current tuition, fee, and housing information, and requires the student to know the amount of aid they are awarded for the semester.

Due to the special circumstances of COVID-19 and the movement to remote learning, the Online Supplemental Fee for any standard online courses will be waived through Summer 2022. UMSL has been providing a waiver that offset the charge for the online supplemental fees since Summer 2020 using funds provided by HEERF. As HEERF funding is no longer available, this waiver will not be provided beginning in Fall 2022. (There was not a waiver of online fees for Nursing Online, DBA, EDD, Online MBA, or any other class with bundled charges.)
