To participate in the UM System Visiting Graduate Student Program, a graduate student must be:
To apply for this program, a UM System Visiting Graduate Student Application should be completed and submitted to the home campus graduate office for certification at least two weeks before the beginning of the semester.
The graduate student’s home campus graduate office will review the form; if approved, the home campus graduate office will transmit the approved form to the host campus graduate office. The host campus will notify the student when they are eligible to register for courses.
All course fees are paid to the host campus. Graduate students should contact their home campus financial aid office for more information on financial aid.
With regard to financial aid, MU has a Dual Enrollment Visiting Consortium Agreement (you can find the policy and the application form here). The consortium allows MU to count hours taken at one of our sister campuses toward financial aid eligibility. Students must complete the agreement and have it processed by both financial aid offices on the home campus and the host campus. Financial aid is applied to the student’s home campus bill, and excess funds are refunded to the student. The home campus will not send financial aid to the host campus. It is the student’s responsibility to make sure the host institution is paid.
International (non-U.S. citizen) students should consult the international student office on their home campus to determine eligibility for this program.
