Financial

The cost of tuition, housing and fees for Missouri Western State University graduate programs is maintained in the business office and is available on their website.

Students applying to the Missouri Western State University Masters of Applied Arts in Digital Media graduate program can offset their costs with any of several types of financial aid — or a combination of multiple types.

Scholarships

A scholarship is a financial award intended to help cover the cost of education. Eligibility is based on criteria established by the donor. Scholarships do not have to be repaid. Most are given to eligible students with no strings attached. Some may require the student to maintain a certain level of academic success, perform community service or work for a particular employer after graduation.

Scholarship information is available on the Missouri Western State University Graduate School website.

Graduate Assistantship

Graduate Assistantships are designed to allow graduate students to become fully immersed in their graduate education. Graduate Assistantships provide a stipend plus cover the cost of tuition in exchange for on-campus employment in an area related to their program of study.

Graduate Assistantships information is available on the Missouri Western State University Graduate School website.

Grants

A financial aid grant is money awarded to a student to pay for education expenses. Grants are given by the federal government, state governments, schools and private institutions. Like scholarships, they do not need to be repaid. Grant providers will stipulate whether a grant should be used toward tuition, research costs or additional expenses.

Grant information can be obtained through the Missouri Western State University Graduate School website.

Loans

An education loan is a form of financial aid that must be repaid, with interest. Eligibility usually, but not always, is based on financial need. Limits are set on how much financial assistance students can receive in the form of federal student loans. Federal law sets the maximum interest rates and fees charged on these loans.

Information on financial aid is available on the Missouri Western State University Financial AID website.
