Costs andĀ Aid

Higher education is a big investment. At Mizzou, that investment pays dividends that last a lifetime.

Since 1839, the University of Missouri has made it possible for students from all walks of life, in Missouri and beyond, to reap the benefits of higher education at a major land-grant university. Considered one of the nation's top-tier institutions, Mizzou has a reputation of excellence in teaching and research and is the flagship campus of the four-campus University of Missouri System.

Mizzou attracts more valedictorians and Bright Flight Scholars than any other college or university in Missouri. Nearly one-third of freshmen come from the top 10 percent of their high school classes.

According to Kiplinger.comexternal link, Mizzou offers one of the best values in American public education, thanks to affordable tuition and the generosity of donors. 

Mizzou offers multiple options to offset the cost of attendance.

  • Four out of five Mizzou students receive some form of financial assistance
