DETERMINE THE TRUE COST OF YOUR EDUCATION

By adding together tuition, fees and room and board and then subtracting your grant and scholarship amounts from the total, you will get an accurate estimate of what your education will actually cost.

TUITION + FEES + ROOM AND BOARD – GRANTS, SCHOLARSHIPS, ETC. = TOTAL COST TO YOU

Some universities might offer you more scholarship money than others, but their tuition could be higher so it’s always a good idea to make an ‘apples to apples’ comparison before making a final decision on where you intend to go.

You may be eligible for our Griffon Rate which allows students to pay the equivalent of in-state tuition! Missouri Western also offers several scholarships that give the equivalent of in-state tuition or other reductions in cost for out-of-state students.
