Non Degree-Seeking Admissions

If you are not seeking a degree, and you wish to take some courses, we can admit you to Missouri State University as a “non degree-seeking student” for undergraduate and graduate students alike. There is no admission fee for the non degree status. Generally, financial aid is not available for the non degree-seeking status. Please fill out our Course Enrollment Form when you are ready to begin the admission process.

If you have any questions regarding admissions and registration as a non degree-seeking student, please review our FAQs page to learn more, or you may email your questions at

  • Students who are unsure about pursuing a college education but would like to explore their possibilities.

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 417-836-4126 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.
