MSU 62 - Nondegree Adult Student Fee Waiver Program

Registration for the Spring 2024 semester has ended. We hope to see you in the fall!

Free tuition for citizens age 62 or older through MSU 62

Missouri State University is pleased to offer a special fee waiver program for adults who are 62 years of age or older. Eligible students may register for one class per fall and spring semester and have the required student fees waived. However, the student must pay special course fees, required textbooks and supplies (including digital course material charges, such as StreamlinED), and parking fees. Classes may be taken for credit or on an audit basis.

Participants in this program will be admitted to Missouri State University as nondegree-seeking students. The MSU 62 registration takes place on the Thursday morning before the semester begins. Enrollment for courses is subject to “seats available” and the required prerequisites.

Qualifying students in this classification are:

  • Missouri resident (living in the state of Missouri for 12 or more months)
  • Age 62 or older
  • Nondegree-seeking students
  • Enrolling in either undergraduate or graduate courses (if postbaccalaureate)
  • Not able to apply this waiver to intersession, special courses, noncredit, or off-campus courses

You can search for courses ahead of time with the Class Schedule Search. You can also use this time to seek special permission from instructors if necessary.
