Fresh Start Grant
Missouri College understands that situations arise where a student may need to withdraw from school. It is our intention to make their transition back to school to finish their program as easy as possible. With this is mind, students who have withdrawn and want to return to school to finish their original program will be awarded a grant in the amount of the tuition previously charged minus the current credit hour rate for credits previously attempted. The grant can only be used once and although calculated upon re-entry, will be awarded in the last term as defined at the time of re-entry.

In an effort to foster lifelong learning in our community, Missouri College is proud to offer an institutional scholarship for diploma graduates returning to further their education. The scholarship is awarded to students entering our Allied Health Associate of Applied Science Program.
This scholarship is awarded to graduates of a 36 credit hour diploma program from a nationally or regionally accredited college recognized by the Department of Education. Diploma graduates must have earned a cumulative GPA of 2.0. The scholarship awarded in the amount of a student’s unmet financial need after Title IV eligible funds may not exceed $3,000. The scholarship will be awarded and posted to the students account only after successful completion of the 20-week program.
