Residency & Midwest Student Exchange
Midwest Student Exchange Program
The Midwest Student Exchange Program (MSEP) is an initiative designed to increase interstate educational opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students in its member states. Created by the Midwestern Higher Education Commission, the program enables residents of the following states to enroll in the institutions and specified programs located outside their home state at reduced tuition levels:
- North Dakota
Students gain a more affordable opportunity to attend an out-of-state institutions, while participating institutions gain increased enrollment efficiency in programs with excess capacity.
Actual savings through MSEP varies from institution to institution. An MSEP student at UMSL pays 150 percent of the institution's regular resident tuition plus any required fees. The CURRENT FEE SCHEDULES are available from the Cashier's Office.
Participating in the Program
Students wishing to take advantage of the Midwest Student Exchange Program and lower tuition rate should first apply for admission to UMSL through the normal process.
Please note: Additional supporting documentation is required and should be sent to the Residency team at email@example.com
Students retain their MSEP status as long as they remain enrolled in a participating degree program, maintain residency in a participating state, and make satisfactory progress toward program completion. MSEP status is revoked if a student changes to a non-participating degree program.

IMPORTANT - PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE FOLLOWING
Students will need to weigh the benefits of MSEP versus any other offered awards, scholarships, and credits, since participants are not eligible for the non-resident tax offset credit for Missouri taxpayers, or to petition for Missouri resident status. If a student opts for a dual major, the student will be required to rank them as primary and secondary majors. Only the primary major will be considered for eligibility in the MSEP.
In considering the rank order of the majors, students should understand that changing a major once they have advanced in their studies, could result in a loss of credit and/or loss of standing in the new major. This, in turn, could add to costs. Therefore, it is recommended that a student use care and weigh the options carefully when ranking their majors.
A student's enrollment will be checked each semester to verify they are in a participating MSEP program. If a student's major has changed to NON-participating program, they will be taken off the MSEP program.
All supporting documents are required to 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.
