non degree status.
Generally, financial aid is not available for the non degree-seeking status.

student, please review our FAQs page to learn more, or you may email your questions at RegServices@MissouriState.edu.

For classes requiring prerequisites or permissions for restricted-level classes, you must contact the academic department (or in some cases, the instructor) and
request approval in order to be able to register into that particular class. Once
you have received the approval, please send the confirmation to RegServices@MissouriState.edu.
Changes to Your Schedule Following Registration
Your MyMissouriState account will allow you to drop or add classes. Once your initial
registration for the semester has been processed, you may also call us at 1-877-678-2005 or locally in Springfield 417-836-6929 for help with dropping or adding a class.
You may also withdraw from the entire semester’s schedule of classes; however, remember
that you must do so before the end of the first week of classes – if 16-week classes
– or you will be charged for the class(es). Failure to attend a class does not automatically
drop you from the class.
