Lion Pride Tuition 

Want to attend Missouri Southern but live outside Missouri?

Students from Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas are eligible for an automatic in-state tuition rate, known as Lion Pride Tuition!

Once admitted, Lion Pride residents from these states not only receive in-state tuition but – if qualified – have the opportunity to receive additional scholarships as well.

We can make your university dreams come to life for a discounted price – without sacrificing quality. While most universities only offer in-state tuition to students native to their state, we’ve found a unique way to invite students from nine outside states into our university.

It doesn’t matter where you’re from – at Missouri Southern State University, we’re all Lions. And we’ve got you covered.

While enjoying your Lion Pride Tuition discount, keep in mind these bonus points: 

  • You can still receive university and academic scholarships in addition to your in-state tuition rate.
  • You get a true university experience and high-quality education, plus an international mission that allows you to become a well-rounded, globally-minded individual.
  • You will have the opportunity to graduate from one of our nationally accredited programs.
