What is the payment process for home school students taking dual credit?
FERPA regulations require that once the student is enrolled in college coursework, all communication from Missouri Western be with the student. The student may complete a Federal Buckley Amendment Release form granting Missouri Western permission to communicate with a designated individual.
The student will attend classes without the accompaniment of a parent or guardian. Requests for exemption from this release form policy (e.g., due to specific disabilities) should be addressed to the Dean of the Western Institute. The release form can be obtained by contacting the Western Institute at (816) 271-4100.
