The Missouri Department of Higher Education has issued regulations to be applied by Missouri colleges and universities to determine the resident status of students. This regulation is available at 6 Code of State Regulations 10-3.010. The burden of proof in establishing residency rests with the student. Students who are legal minors or tax-dependents whose parents reside outside the state of Missouri are not eligible for resident fee paying status. One can be classified as a resident for fee purposes immediately upon moving to the state if the move is to accept full-time employment (or if one is the dependent of someone who came to Missouri to accept full-time employment.) In other situations, continuous domiciliary presence in the state for 12 months must be proven AND sufficient proof of intent to be domiciled in Missouri permanently must be provided:
NOTE: A person classified as a non-resident upon his/her first enrollment will continue to be classified as a non-resident for the duration of his/her enrollment. Questions concerning the status of residency should be referred to the Office of Admissions.

Students Declaring a Major
Students declaring a major who are accepted to the college and admitted into a degree or certificate program may receive federal financial aid if eligible.
Students with No Major
A student with no major is degree seeking but does not have a major for one of the following reasons:
NOTE: Enrolling at State Technical College of Missouri as a student without a major may lengthen the time it takes to complete a degree.
If a student is taking preparatory coursework to gain admittance into an eligible program, the student may receive Federal Stafford and PLUS loans, if eligible, for one consecutive 12-month period. Class work taken during this time must be required for their desired degree program. Students are not eligible for other federal aid such as Federal Pell Grants and College Work Study until they have been admitted into an eligible degree or certificate program.
Students with Dual Majors
Students who desire to earn multiple majors need to be aware that courses will be offered in the same sequence and semester that they are regularly taught. Students with dual majors should expect the completion of the programs to take longer than two years and will be responsible for consulting the Office of Financial Aid regarding their financial aid eligibility and options.
An international student is a foreign-born person, who is not a citizen, national or permanent resident of the United States. International students typically live outside of the United States, but may be residing in the United States on a non-immigrant visa. In either case, a student who is not a citizen, national, or permanent resident of the United States is considered an international student and must follow the Admissions process for international students. An international student must be degree seeking and admitted into his/her desired degree program. International students will be issued a Certificate of Eligibility (I-20) only after completing and/or submitting the following information:
For students living outside the United States:
International students who are from countries where English is not an official language and/or were not schooled in English must submit evidence of English proficiency. This requirement may be satisfied by providing one of the following:

Non-Degree Seeking Students
Students who wish to take classes, but do not wish to pursue a degree may be permitted to enroll under non-degree seeking student status.
If the non-degree seeking student wishes to take math, communication, social science, and/or science classes at anytime during enrollment, the student must provide ACT or COMPASS test scores.
When a non-degree seeking student decides to seek a degree or certificate at State Technical College of Missouri, he or she must complete the State Technical College of Missouri degree seeking student application requirements described earlier.
