Missouri citizens age 62 and older can now log into MSU’s virtual classrooms.
The MSU 62 program now includes online courses. Missouri State University’s Adult Student Services offers MSU 62, a program offered for senior citizens to take classes tuition-free. As the name suggests, students must be at least 62 years old to participate.
Both tuition and student services fees are waived for program participants. At MSU, in-state tuition costs $257 per credit hour. The cost of student service fees varies. While tuition and the student services fees are waived, students will need to pay for books, parking passes, textbooks, special course fees and any other supplies necessary.
Students are admitted to the university as non-degree seeking students. Classes can be taken for credit but cannot count towards a degree. When enrolling, advisors suggest students know the required prerequisites for a class and check if seats are available. Most departments are willing to work with the program to find a place for students. Check the catalog for course offerings. Use the class schedule search tools to discover when and how classes are offered.
