The cost of attending Mizzou is different for each student, depending on variables such as degree program, housing choices, special course fees and individual needs. Budgets used by MU Student Financial Aid in determining eligibility for financial aid include:

1. Direct university charges:

  • tuition
  • non-resident tuition
  • on-campus room and board

2. Estimates of indirect expenses:

  • books and supplies
  • off-campus room and board
  • personal expenses
  • transportation expenses

MU uses average budgets in the initial determination of need. Because we use averages, the figures used by Student Financial Aid may vary slightly from other published figures.
