A Guide to Online Colleges in Missouri

The original Gateway to the West, Missouri’s first European settlers were French and French Canadians, eager to utilize the Mississippi River for the lucrative fur trading business in present-day St. Louis. (St. Louis itself was founded by successful French fur traders who came up from New Orleans.) The state has maintained its identity as a major hub for transportation, trade, and business throughout its history, evolving from its frontier status to central axis as the country expanded westward. Today, in addition to its agricultural and beer industries (the state has the second-most farms in the country, behind only Texas), the economy has significant works in aerospace, chemicals, manufacturing, and limestone, lead, and crushed stone mining. (It’s thanks in part to such a diversified economy that Missouri has one the lowest unemployment rates in the country.) Missouri is also an under-appreciated home of some of America’s most renowned artists, from Charlie Parker, Chuck Berry, and Tina Turner, to Mark Twain, T.S. Eliot, and Tennessee Williams. Its colleges and universities are some of the finest in the country, including the University of Missouri, Washington University in St. Louis, and Saint Louis University, many of which now offer online degrees that are increasingly popular, especially among in-state students.

In-state tuition is often applied to public schools offering online programs. Many online programs require some face-to-face time, or more numerous support services at their brick and mortar locations. Intensive study experiences–often on the weekends or in several week long bouts–enable many online students to accelerate their time until graduation. And students looking at online education can drastically expand their educational options if they also look to hybrid degrees (degrees where degrees can be taken partially, or mostly online). Finally, one of the most common stipulations in scholarships is that students be from a certain state or region, often more funds are available to students seeking degrees in-state.

There are 12 public schools in Missouri that offer online degrees, including Missouri State University-Springfield, University of Missouri-Kansas City, University of Missouri-St Louis, Southeast Missouri State University, Truman State University, Lincoln University, Missouri Southern State University, and Missouri University of Science and Technology. MSU Springfield is the largest of these (and the largest in the state), with 23 degrees available online, including bachelors, masters, and doctoral tracks in a wide range of fields, including Business, Information Tech/Services/Management, Healthcare, Communications, Education, and Nursing. Southeast Missouri State University (21 degrees) and Missouri University of Science and Technology (17 degrees) are the second and the third largest, respectively. Missouri also has several community colleges that offer distance education options: Ozarks Technical Community College, Moberly Area Community College, and Three Rivers Community College, which have a total of 13 pre-professional associate tracks to choose from.

There are 20 private schools in Missouri that offer online degrees, including Webster University, Washington University in St Louis, Missouri Baptist University, Fontbonne University, Drury University, Columbia College, Missouri Valley College, Lindenwood University, Nazarene Theological Seminary, and Maryville University of Saint Louis, among others. At 21 online degrees each, Columbia College (15 bachelors, 6 masters) and Drury University (8 associates, 11 bachelors, 2 masters) are the largest of these. Webster offers a BA in Religion and Global Society and 19 masters, the most online graduate degrees in the state; tracks include EdS concentrations, MBA concentrations, MEd concentrations, and masters of Public Relations, Space System Operations Management, Management and Leadership, Procurement and Acquisitions Management, Finance, and more. A.T. Still offers 13 health sciences degrees, including 8 doctoral degrees in Health Administration, Physical Therapy, Health Education, Athletic Training, Occupational Therapy, and more.

Potential Resident

For a variety of reasons, a student may look to move to the state of their online college program whether specifically required by the program or not – be it for a job, location desirability, school benefits, etc. Different states have different policies, however, and some of them can be rather demanding. Fortunately, Missouri’s requirements are relatively simple: the student (or parent/guardian) must have proof of full-time employment or retirement for a minimum of 12 consecutive months, plus proof of intent to make Missouri a permanent home for an indefinite period of time. Click here for more information. In general, proof can consist of a state driver’s license, pay stub, utilities bill, etc. For information about exceptions – as a result of military service; personal, income, or property taxes; or automobile registration – see here for the complete guidelines.

The four-year public university tuition is $8,564 for 2015-16, over $500 less than the national average. The percent change is also below the national average, up just 2% from the year before (compared to 3% nationally) and 8% over the last 5 years (compared to 13% nationally); the latter is especially nice when we consider that some states saw increases of over 20% over the last 5 years. Considered over a ten-year period, the trend holds: tuition has only increased more than $100 year-over-year on a few occasions, and in some cases fell. All said, in-state Missouri students benefit both from extremely affordable and stable, predictable costs – plus some of the top public universities in the country, according to top publications like US News and the Princeton Review.

Both Nazarene Theological Seminary and the University of Missouri KC offer online degrees within the city limits. UMKC is the largest, with 2 bachelors (Rn to Bsn and Liberal Arts), 3 masters (MS in Dental Hygiene, MSN in Family Psychiatric Mental Health, and an Eds), and a Doctor of Nursing Practice, Doctor of Pharmacy, and Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing. Nazarene, a private divinity school, offers 3 masters concentrations in Theological Studies. The next-closest option is Missouri Valley College, which offers an applied associate in Health Information Systems and 3 bachelors in Business Administration (with a concentration in Small Business Development), Criminal Justice, and Psychology. In Columbia and central Missouri, Stephens College (1 bachelor, 2 masters), Moberley Area Community College (2 associates), Williams Wood University (1 associate, 3 bachelors, 4 masters), and Lincoln University (1 bachelor, 3 masters) all provide online opportunities.

There are 7 universities in St. Louis offering online degrees: Webster University, UM St. Louis, Washington University, Maryville, Fontbonne, and Covenant Theological Seminary. Several of these represent some of the largest distance education programs in the state. Webster offers 20 total online degrees, all of which are masters, save a lone bachelors in Religion and Global Society. The graduate programs consist of several EdS concentrations, an MBA, and MA/MS’s in a wide range of disicplines, from Information Technology Management and Science Management and Leadership, to Education and Innovation and Management and Leadership. The largest public provider, University of Missouri-St.Louis has 14 bachelors available online, the second most in the state, with studies in Business Administration, Political Science, Sociology, Nursing, Film, Criminology And Criminal Justice, Advertising, and more. Washington Univeristy, the state’s top-ranked private school, offers 9 bachelors in a range of liberal arts and business field, plus graduate tracks in Human Resources Management, Nonprofit Management, International Affairs, and Biology For Science Teachers.

Four colleges and universities offer online degrees in Springfield: Missouri State, Ozarks Technical Community College, Drury University, and Evangel University. With 23 degrees available online, Missouri State-Springfield is the largest distance education program in the state: 9 bachelors in business, law enforcement, tech, and professional fields; 13 masters, including MBA options, an MSN, and several education emphases; and a Doctor of Nursing Practice. Drury is the second-largest distance education provider, with 8 associates, 11 bachelors, MEds in Instructional Mathematics (K-8) and Instructional Technology. Ozarks ties Drury for the most associate tracks, offered in Accounting, Business And Marketing, Business Technology, Business, Teaching, Health Information Technology, Arts, and Interdepartmental Studies.

Monitoring the accreditation of a university you are interested in attending is incredibly important. Accreditation ensures your credits can transfer that you can receive Federal financial aid, and most importantly that certain standards of educational quality are during your schooling. The highest accreditation standard for most programs in the United States is provided by regional accreditation agencies. The regional accrediting agency for Missouri is the Higher Learning Commission, one of six regional accrediting agencies responsible for accrediting schools in Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Wisconsin, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

Making sure that a University you’re hoping to attend is regionally accredited–or accredited by a real and respected accrediting agency–is one of the most important choices you can make in ensuring the quality of your education.

Three Steps for Securing Financial Aid

  • Submit your FAFSA.
  • Check to see if additional forms are needed at your university of choice.
  • Search and apply for private scholarships.

Through the previous three steps most students find themselves offered some sort of federal grant, work study, private grant, scholarship, or stipend.
