Students from across the University of Missouri campus crowded into the Mizzou Rec on Wednesday, March 8, to meet with employers about potential job and internship opportunities. More than 1,000 students attended the event, which included a variety of employers and businesses.

New Tuition Structure (Beginning Fall 2023)

TheĀ new tuition structure has been posted on the MU Cashiers Office website. The new structure considers three tuition tiers (CAFNR has two tiers) and the plateau rate for 12 to 18 credit hours. Students and families will select Residency Status, Enrollment Status, School or College, and Academic Plan (Major), and will then be provided with the total cost per semester. For more information or questions about the new structure, visit the Cashiers Office website.
