In order for you to file a Petition for Missouri Resident Status, you must have applied for admission to the University of Missouri - St. Louis. Each petition from an applicant or accepted student is reviewed individually and in accordance with Tuition Assessment Rules; therefore, it is important that the petition be completed accurately and all required and supporting evidentiary material be submitted with the petition.

It is required that all materials be received by the Campus Residency Officer by the end of the eighth week of the current/future Fall or Spring Semester (by the end of the first week of the current/future Summer Session) for which Missouri Resident Status is sought. Petitions and/or evidentiary material arriving after these deadlines will be considered only for a subsequent semester.
