COVID-19 Updates for Mizzou Admissions

Preparing for college can be stressful even under normal circumstances. As all our lives have been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to make sure that you get the information and help you need to continue your admissions journey.

This new reality will be an entirely different experience and all members of our community share a responsibility for the collective well-being and success of all Tigers. At Mizzou, we’re all in this together.

This page is where new information from the Office of Admissions will be posted, so please check it regularly.

The overall campus plan is available on the the Show Me Renewal site.

Incoming Students

How can I learn more about resources and offices on campus?

Many offices are offering a series of webinars this summer. See the complete list.

Can I still move into my residence hall?

Yes! You can find the most up-to-date information from Residential Life.

Is recruitment for fraternities and sororities still happening?

Yes! As with almost everything, Greek recruitment will be somewhat different this year. Read about the changes on their web page.

What is changing to keep campus safe?

Some classes will be fully online, some in a blended format and others will remain in person but scheduled in larger rooms. Also, all Mizzou students are expected to take proactive steps including social distancing, hand hygiene, use of face coverings, monitoring their personal health and staying home if they are feeling unwell to protect the safety of our entire community. Read more in the Show Me Renewal plan.

How can I contact offices if I have questions?

We are here for you! While we are slowly and intentionally repopulating campus, many offices cannot accommodate walk-in visitors at this time. All are available, though. You can start by calling or emailing the office and if a virtual appointment (via Zoom, for example) is needed, they’ll gladly set one up.
