Financial Aid

The UMKC Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships can assist with providing additional information regarding financial aid programs, including federal and state grant and loan programs.  In addition, the UMKC Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships can offer you more information on the types of expenses you can expect, as well as the type of assistance that might be available to you. Students who do not reside in Missouri but have Missouri state personal income tax may be eligible for the Non-Resident Taxpayers Scholarship. Visit http://www.umkc.edu/residency/ for more information. In general, students interested in merit or need-based financial aid may be eligible for various loans, grants and/or other financial aid programs. To be considered for such programs, a student must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is available through the UMKC Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships or at www.fafsa.ed.gov. The priority date for filing the FAFSA is March 1.

Residency

The students who enter the MMSPA program shall be selected from two different categories: in-state and out-of-state.  In-state students are those who are classified as bona fide residents of the state of Missouri. Out-of-state students are those students who are classified as residents of states outside of the state of Missouri. Residency status is determined by the UMKC Office of Admissions and is based on the residency rules of the Board of Curators of the University of Missouri.

More information about residency rules and definitions can be found at http://www.umkc.edu/admissions/university-of-missouri-residence-rules.html.  Questions regarding residency should be directed to the UMKC Office of Admissions at 816-235-1111.
