Rendering of the new Hass-Darr Hall

Above is an early rendering of the exterior of Hass-Darr Hall once it is completed from Dake-Wells Architecture in Springfield. The facility was named Hass-Darr Hall in recognition of significant gifts from Mary Hass Sheid, West Plains, and the William R. Hass family, Springfield, and William and Virginia Darr, Springfield.

Hass-Darr Hall Project Underway

Construction has begun on the Hass-Darr Hall project at 201 Garfield Avenue on the Missouri State-West Plains campus. A groundbreaking ceremony was held March 31, and it is anticipated the project will be completed in spring 2018.

"This facility has been needed on our campus for a long time," Chancellor Drew Bennett said. "Hass-Darr Hall will provide a long-requested gathering space for our students with the addition of the Carol Silvey Student Union, complete with a coffee bar. The facility also brings together our growing academic support services and the honors program."

Once completed, the facility will house the student union, the William and Virginia Darr Honors Program, Drago College Store, tutoring services, the admissions office, the Veterans' Center and other much-needed classroom and administrative office space that will enhance student learning and academic success.

Upon the decision to jump into the experience headfirst and make the most that I could, I found that Missouri State-West Plains had a major impact on what I am today. It gave me a confidence that I did not ever have academically and as a person, motivation to become successful and a group of people I can count on and seek advice from for the rest of my life."

Why did you choose to attend Missouri State-West Plains?

Coming from a small town with a graduating class of 42, I was used to small classes and a campus where everyone knew everyone. I was looking for something that was away from home, but close enough I could come back and visit on weekends, somewhere where I wouldn’t be afraid to get involved or ask questions during class. After taking a private tour of the campus my senior year, I knew I belonged at Missouri State-West Plains.

Political Science.

Advanced Technical Training available through the Greater Ozarks Center for Advanced Technology (GOCAT)

In an effort to bring advanced technical training to area residents, Missouri State University-West Plains, the South Central Career Center and the City of West Plains have joined forces to develop the Greater Ozarks Center for Advanced Technology (GOCAT). Through GOCAT, residents can complete degree and certificate programs in technology or participate in customized training opportunities.

The center provides advanced, hands-on manufacturing training to individuals – from high school age through adulthood – who are looking to expand their skills in a technical field. Major manufacturers of our area, such as DRS Technologies, Armstrong Flooring, Regal and Caterpillar, helped develop the training programs to benefit manufacturers of all sizes.

Degrees and Certificates

The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Technology, with options in Alternative Energy, Manufacturing Technology and Technology Management, is available to students through a combination of seated, blended, online and laboratory courses. They are approved by the Coordinating Board for Higher Education and, for the eligible student, are fully approved for federal and state financial aid programs.

Each of the options within the AAS degree is also offered as stand-alone certificate programs. Certificates offered are appropriate for students interested in improving job skills and opportunities in manufacturing and technical fields and can generally be obtained in less than one year.

Skills You'll Learn as a Student

Courses offered within the degree and certificate programs cover electronics and electricity, machining, CAD/CAM, PLCs, controllers, robotics, hydraulics, welding and more. They will help you develop specific skill sets for the following options:

  • Alternative Energy: Electricity, electronics, biofuels, solar and wind energy
  • Manufacturing Technology: Welding, automated manufacturing, materials and processes
  • Technology Management: Safety, supply chain, quality and project management

Employment Opportunities

Students who successfully complete training could find jobs as manufacturing technicians, maintenance repair technicians, electronics technicians and solar panel technicians.

Employment in these job sectors in south-central Missouri is expected to grow by 8.5 percent by 2022 with 28.5 percent coming from new growth. Average salary is $40,108. Top employers and industry partners are DRS Technologies, Armstrong, Perennial Energy, Caterpillar, Arlee, Regal and Missouri Sun Solar.

Career development assistance is available. For more information or to enroll, contact the admissions office at (417) 255-7955 or at WPAdmissions@MissouriState.edu

New students

Getting started is easy!

Priority Enrollment for New Students: Students are encouraged to apply for admission early in order to complete all steps in the enrollment process and allow time for any financial aid to be processed.

Because the process is important and takes a significant amount of time, it is recommended that application procedures be completed immediately for the summer session and by June 1 for the fall semester. Applications are accepted prior to the first week of each semester; however, registration priority is given to early applicants. Students beginning the process later than recommended may not be able to accomplish the full enrollment process (admission, orientation, registration) before the first day of the semester and may need to wait until a subsequent semester to enroll.

If seeking financial aid: Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and submit any required supporting documents as early as possible. (Late applicants should anticipate that financial aid may not be processed prior to the beginning of the semester and should be prepared to purchase textbooks with other resources. Tuition and fees can be paid utilizing the University's deferred payment plan).

New students can follow the steps below to be admitted, take placement tests, attend orientation and register for classes.

Step one – Admission

  • Submit an application for admission to the admissions office.
  • Request high school transcript be sent directly to the admissions office or request HiSET, GED or other state approved high school equivalency transcript be mailed to the admissions office from the department of education in the capital city of the state in which tested. Missouri High School Equivalency (HiSET and GED) transcripts are accessible by the University and do not require applicant request.
  • Request official college transcript(s) be mailed directly to the admissions office if you have taken or are currently taking any courses for college credit. Students with 24 or more transferable hours are not required to provide high school transcript.

After the above documentation is received and processed by the admissions office, you will be mailed an admission letter that includes your BearPass number.

Non-Degree Seeking Students: There are several admission categories for students who wish to take courses but do not wish to pursue a degree. (Go to our admissions website or contact the admissions office for options, requirements and limitations.)

Readmission: Former students who have not been enrolled for one academic year or more must apply for readmission. Returning students are encouraged to initiate the admission and registration processes well in advance of the semester in which they plan to return. Documentation and procedures will vary depending on previous enrollment.

Senior Citizen Fee Waiver Program: Missouri State University-West Plains offers a fee waiver program to any Missouri resident at least 62 years of age who wishes to take an academic course offered by the University on an audit, non-credit, "seats available" basis. Special courses, off-campus or online course offerings are not eligible for this waiver program. Students will need to buy textbooks (if required) and pay supplemental course fees. For more information, contact the admissions office at (417) 255-7955 or toll free (888) 466-7897.

Step two – Testing

Placement policy: Missouri State University-West Plains does not require certain tests, such as the ACT, for admission; however, to ensure students are placed in courses in which they will be successful, students must take either the ACT or ACCUPLACER test to determine placement in classes that have a math or reading prerequisite. A student's placement in English courses will be determined by a self-evaluation of the student's writing skills. Contact the advisement and academic coaching center for empowering student success (AACCESS) at (417) 255-7222 for information about the English placement process. For information about ACT or ACCUPLACER tests needed for courses that require a math or reading placement score, please read below.

ACT: ACT scores must be less than five years old. If ACT scores are not on the high school transcript, students should ask the testing company to send them to the admissions office. For more information about sending ACT scores, call ACT at 319-337-1313. Students are encouraged to take the ACT at a national test site. Most high school counselors have information concerning national ACT test dates and locations. Missouri State University-West Plains offers a residual ACT, but students should be aware that these residual test results are for use only by Missouri State University.

ACCUPLACER: Students may take the ACCUPLACER test instead of the ACT for placement in courses that require certain math and reading scores. Students also may take the ACCUPLACER to challenge placement as determined by ACT. Missouri State University-West Plains offers the ACCUPLACER by appointment. Please contact AACCESS at (417) 255-7222 to make an appointment to take the ACCUPLACER.

Transfer students with more than 24 hours who do not have English composition credits will need to contact AACCESS at (417) 255-7222.

  • The IDS 110 requirement will be waived for transfer students with 24 or more transfer credit hours with a 2.5 cumulative GPA.
  • The IDS 150 requirement will be waived for transfer students with 24 or more transfer credit hours with a 2.5 cumulative GPA.

My Payment Plan

Students may enroll in My Payment Plan. Student fees must be paid in monthly installments as indicated by the fee payment deadlines. Summer payment plan due dates are June 15 and July 15. Fall payment plan due dates are September 15, October 15 and November 15. Students must have their balance paid in full in order to participate in the spring early registration process.

A convenience fee of 2.75 percent is now applied to American Express, Discover, Mastercard and Visa credit and debit card payments. For more information, terms and conditions, visit the business office in Cass Hall or call 417-255-7260.

CASHNet

Notification that a bill is ready to be viewed will be transmitted electronically to the student's University email account and payments may be made online. To access electronic bills and payment information, log into http://mygrizzlyden.missouristate.edu. No paper bills will be sent to students or parents.

Additional information can be found at: http://wp.missouristate.edu/businessoffice/

Note: It is the student's responsibility to complete payment whether or not additional statements are received. Payments must be received (not mailed) by the due date specified. In addition, students who withdraw from the University may continue to owe fees if the withdrawal is not requested in writing on or before the first five days of the term for the Summer Session and the first five days of the Fall Semester. Refer to the Fee Refund Schedule for more information.

Residency for Fee Purposes

Because Missouri State University-West Plains is a state-assisted institution, fees for Missouri residents are lower than those for non-residents. A student's residence status is determined at the time of admission according to a policy recommended by the Missouri Coordinating Board for Higher Education and adopted by the Missouri State University Board of Governors. Copies of this policy are available on request from the admissions office. Current students seeking a change in their resident classification should contact the admissions office.


Financial Aid

Financial aid is available in the form of scholarships, grants, loans and work-study programs. We recommend that you apply as early as possible to have funds available for the next semester.

To apply for federal and state financial aid, students must apply on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at https://fafsa.gov and must include Missouri State University-West Plains' school code (031060). For more information, view our Scholarship and Financial Aid information at http://wp.missouristate.edu/finaid/. If you have questions, contact the Missouri State University-West Plains financial aid office in Cass Hall or call (417) 255-7243.

Note: Return of Title IV Funds (Pell Grant, SEOG Grant, Stafford Loans): If a student who received federal financial aid funds withdraws during a semester, monies that were disbursed to the student after institutional charges were paid may have to be repaid by the student. Check with the financial aid office for more information and examples of how a withdrawal could affect you.
