MizzouMACC is a co-enrollment program between Moberly Area Community College (MACC) and the University of Missouri (Mizzou). MizzouMACC students experience the depth and breadth of a four-year university while enjoying the affordability and academic flexibility found at a two-year institution. This collaborative program includes academic advisers, faculty and staff at MACC and Mizzou who work together to help students succeed. The program provides enhanced academic advising to ease the transfer of credits and increases campus involvement to foster student success.
Co-enrollment. MizzouMACC students enroll in coursework at MACC and Mizzou. MizzouMACC students take MACC courses (9 to 12 hours) and Mizzou courses (1 to 6 hours) to ensure efficient use of time and financial resources.
Campus resources. MizzouMACC students have access to all MACC and Mizzou services, including the library, recreation center, student health services, technology labs, student organizations and athletic events. Standard fees apply.
Early registration. MizzouMACC students starting this program in the fall may register for Mizzou courses in July. Registration for MACC courses begins in April.
Enhanced academic preparation through advising on both campuses. Integrating coursework between the two campuses allows a student to establish a Mizzou GPA, which eases the transition into Mizzou degree programs.
A+ Scholarship. Qualifying MizzouMACC students may use A+ funds toward MACC’s tuition and fees if enrolled in 12 or more credit hours between MACC and Mizzou.
First Time College students.Graduating high school seniors with a minimum 17 ACT composite or 820 SAT combined critical reading and math score (pre-March 2016 exam), or 900 SAT (redesigned exam) score are eligible to apply. If a student does not have an ACT or SAT score, or college credit, the student may take the ACT residually on Mizzou’s campus (fees apply) one time post high school graduation. A residual ACT may only be used on the campus where it is taken.
Current college students. College students (those who have received a high school diploma) must be in good academic standing at their current institution. In addition, students must have a minimum 2.5 cumulative college GPA with at least six credit hours taken after high school graduation. Students must maintain a 2.5 GPA at each institution to remain in the program.
- First, apply to Mizzou as an on-campus, non-degree-seeking visiting student following the detailed instructions below.
- Second, apply through standard procedures as a degree-seeking associate of arts student at MACC if not already attending MACC. Enrollment in this program is open to students attending any MACC campus.
Instructions for submitting a new MizzouMACC application
Complete a new non-degree-seeking student application. A student who has previously applied to Mizzou will log into our application system as a returning user and start a new undergraduate application. A student who has never applied to Mizzou will need to create a first-time user account.
On the “Status and Interests” section of the application, answer “no” to “Do you want to seek a major?” Next, indicate your desire to take courses on-campus, your intention to attend MACC and your interest in the MizzouMACC program. Answer the questions in every section to submit the application.
By submitting the application, MACC and Mizzou are authorized to view academic information from both campuses. Transcripts and academic information from both institutions will be shared and used to coordinate academic advising, admission and renewal criteria.
After applications are completed and all necessary information has been received by each institution, the MU Office of Admissions will notify students of their MizzouMACC status via email.
Admitted MizzouMACC students will contact the Mizzou New Student Programs office to sign up for orientation sessions. Several session dates will be available.
Billing and Costs
Students receive bills from both Mizzou and MACC. Students must make payments at both institutions, and the accounts are managed separately. Billing from Mizzou will be similar to the standard structure, although MizzouMACC students are not assessed late fees until October if enrolled in the fall semester. (This is because MACC does not disperse aid until 45 days after classes begin.) Students pay respective tuition and fees at Mizzou and MACC. Both schools charge tuition and fees based on a per-credit-hour basis, so overall costs may vary.
Financial aid is dispersed by MACC’s Financial Aid Office. A+ funding is available during the fall and spring semesters to eligible students enrolled in at least 12 credits per semester between both institutions. Students must enroll in a minimum of 6 hours at MACC to use A+ funding during the summer. A+ funding cannot be applied to Mizzou tuition and fees. MACC also has a number of scholarships for which MizzouMACC students may apply if they meet eligibility guidelines. Net price calculators are available on both the Mizzou and MACC websites.
Mizzou financial aid and scholarships are not available to MizzouMACC students. Those who have been admitted to Mizzou as full time, degree-seeking students are not eligible to receive scholarships or financial aid through Mizzou as MizzouMACC students.
MizzouMACC students wishing to use financial aid to assist with MU costs must sign MACC’s financial aid consortium agreement to participate in this program.
Academic advising for Mizzou courses is provided by advisers from Mizzou’s Student Success Center who work with academic department advisers on behalf of the student. Advising for MACC courses is provided by MACC. The transfer of academic information will be coordinated by academic advisers on both campuses.
MU Residential Life housing and dining options are available to MizzouMACC students. Although MizzouMACC students are not required to live on campus, we recommend it based on the higher success rates of students who choose to reside at Mizzou. Students submit housing applications and housing contracts for review. Any MizzouMACC student can sign a Mizzou housing and dining contract as long as he or she is enrolled in at least one class at Mizzou. For more information, visit Residential Life’s process for incoming transfer students or call 573-882-7275. Residential housing and campus dining at MACC is available only at MACC’s Moberly campus.
Student Life and Services
MizzouMACC students have full access to all Mizzou and MACC services (standard fees required) and extracurricular activities, including the library, recreation center, student health, technology labs and more than 700 student organizations.
MizzouMACC students may not pledge Mizzou social fraternities or sororities until completing the program and transferring to Mizzou as a full time, degree-seeking student.
Progressing Through the Program
Students must complete a minimum of 24 hours, including at least 18 hours at MACC and 6 hours at MU within a 12-month period, and maintain a 2.5 GPA at each institution. We encourage students to take at least 15 hours per semester in order to graduate in four years from most bachelor’s degree programs. The maximum number of terms for participation in the MizzouMACC program is five, excluding summer terms.
After completing the MizzouMACC program (or earlier if determined by the student and academic advisers), the student may apply for transfer admission to Mizzou as a degree-seeking student, pay the application fee and supply copies of all required documents, including transcripts from other schools the student might have attended. Through the agreement signed upon entering the program, MizzouMACC students will have their transcripts from Mizzou sent back to MACC in order for the earned Mizzou credits to be applied toward their associate of arts (AA) degree. We encourage students who transfer to Mizzou before earning their AA degree to opt-in to the Missouri Reverse Transfer program which allows students to have their Mizzou coursework evaluated and used by MACC to progress toward earning their associate of arts degree.
