(Joplin, MO) – While backup plans are in place should the COVID-19 pandemic situation change, Missouri Southern State University is moving forward toward fully opening campus this fall.
“The Fall 2020 semester will be an exciting time – one of renewed energy and focus as Missouri Southern moves forward,” said Dr. Alan Marble, president of the university.
The university anticipates offering face-to-face classes and a full slate of campus activities, he said.
Admissions and enrollment are underway, with the Fall 2020 Schedule book available on the university’s website. The enrollment team is ready to answer any questions students may have. More information is available at https://www.mssu.edu/student.
Missouri Southern’s Financial Aid Office is working to ensure students have the resources to successfully complete their education, despite their financial background or current economic situation.
In a typical academic year, the university offers more than $6 million in academic and departmental scholarships, says Becca Diskin, director of financial aid. Federal and state aid – which includes grants, work study and loans – total more than $36 million.
