As an exchange student, you will continue to pay tuition and other student fees to your home university. At MU, you will pay the following fees:

  • International student health insurance (Aetna)
  • Information technology fee
  • Living expenses (room and meal plan, including early housing costs)
  • International student services fee
  • Residence hall social fee (if living on campus)
  • Supplemental course fees (charged by some academic departments)
  • Books and academic supplies (can be as much as $350–$500 per semester)
  • Additional expenses (transportation, entertainment, personal expenses)

You will not pay tuition, student activities, student health, non-Missouri resident and recreation center fees. These fees may show up on your account initially, but will be removed once the add/drop period for the semester has passed.

More information about money and finances is available in the Exchange Student Orientation Handbook.
