Mission of the Financial Aid Office

The mission of the Financial Aid Office at Missouri Southern State University is to enable students to successfully complete a university education regardless of their financial background. The Financial Aid Team strives to keep students informed of current government regulations, to foster open communication between staff and students, and maintain positive customer service.


Missouri Southern participates in a variety of aid programs to assist qualified students. These funds – from private, institutional, state and federal sources – are coordinated to meet the individual student's financial need, performing ability and academic excellence.
