MU now offers a 10 percent tuition reduction for community college graduates who want to pursue an online bachelor’s degree.
The Mizzou Online Community College Tuition Award is available to Missouri residents who have graduated from a community college in the state and are pursuing one of MU’s undergraduate distance programs. The reduction will count toward the student’s base tuition and can be used for up to 150 cumulative hours of classes.
“We look forward to serving recent community college graduates as well as those nontraditional students seeking to pursue a bachelor’s degree,” Chuck May, MU admissions director, said in a press release.
Ron Chesbrough, chair of the Missouri Community College Association’s Presidents and Chancellors Council, said that Missouri community college graduates are some of the most prepared for attaining a four-year degree.
“We are pleased to count the University of Missouri among our four-year partners, and we welcome this announcement of a tuition award for these highly sought after students,” Chesbrough said.
“This tuition award makes our online bachelor’s programs even more accessible to students across our state,” said Jim Spain, MU vice provost for undergraduate studies and e-learning.
MU has an Internet access agreement with the MCCA, which lets community college graduates continue to use on-campus computers to pursue online degrees from MU.
In June, MU began a 10 percent online tuition discount for active-duty military personnel. This discount can be awarded to those seeking a graduate or undergraduate degree and applies to a maximum of 150 undergraduate hours or 75 graduate hours.
Mizzou Online has nine undergraduate degree options: Early Childhood Education in a Mobile Society, Educational Studies, General Studies, Health Sciences, Hospitality Management, Interdisciplinary Studies, Nursing, Radiography and Respiratory Therapy.
