Tuition and Fees

You'll notice that Missouri Western does not shy away from talking about cost, because we are committed to providing an exceptional educational experience at an affordable cost. Missouri Western's cost is not only below the national average, it is actually one of the lowest in the state. Also, if you live in Kansas, Iowa, Illinois or Nebraska, you may qualify for our Griffon Rate, which is the same as in-state tuition.
