Is there a difference in tuition for in-state vs. out-of-state Missouri State University-Springfield students?
Missouri State University-Springfield
Hi Alexia! There is a difference, but students coming from outside the state of Missouri can pay the same rate as Missouri students if they have a 3.25 GPA, a 24 on the ACT or are in the top half of their class when they graduate. Just one of those things can qualify them for paying in-state costs.
