MHEC helps improve access to postsecondary education through the Midwest Student Exchange Program (MSEP). Since 1994, the MSEP has provided more affordable opportunities for students to attend out-of-state institutions. The MSEP serves as the Midwest's largest multi-state tuition reciprocity program. MSEP is not a scholarship.
Part-time non-resident waiver
Non-resident students who take a part-time credit load of six hours or less during a 16-week term, or three hours or less during an eight-week term, may be eligible to receive a tuition waiver to offset the non-resident portion of their educational fees. This tuition waiver is not available to non-resident students taking more than six hours during a 16-week term or more than three hours during an eight-week term. Total hours are determined by term, not by individual session. Dropping classes from full-time to six or fewer hours during a 16-week term, or three or fewer hours during an eight-week term, does not make the student eligible for the part-time non-resident waiver.
If a student who has been credited with this waiver makes a total withdrawal from the University, that student is no longer eligible for any part-time non-resident waiver amount.
International students on a F1 or J1 Visa are not eligible to receive the Part-time non-resident waiver. F2 or J2 Visa holders, whose I-20 or DS-2019 is issued by UMKC, are also excluded from eligibility for the Part-time non-resident waiver.
Student must comply with the requirement of House Bill 390 by submitting appropriate documentation of proof of lawful presence to the Registration Office.
Educational assistance for university employees
Seventy-five percent of the education fee is waived for eligible employees registering in University of Missouri college level credit courses.
Educational assistance for spouse/dependents of university employees
Fifty percent reduction of educational fees is available to an eligible spouse or eligible dependent child of an eligible employee for up to 140 hours of University of Missouri college credit courses per spouse or dependent child. The rate for all courses (undergraduate, graduate or professional) will be based on the educational fee charged to a resident student for undergraduate courses. The reduction will not exceed 50 percent per student.
