Students must report their correct addresses at the time of registration and notify the office of registration and records in writing when changes are made. A form may be printed from the web site wp.missouristate.edu.
The local address is generally used to contact students when classes are in session. The permanent address is used on grade reports, billings, refunds, and other items sent while classes are not in session. The local address and permanent address may be the same in the case of a commuting student.
Change of a permanent address does not affect a student’s residency status for fee purposes. Students may apply for reclassification to resident status for fee purposes. The Residency Policy and Application for classification as a Missouri Resident are availible at: http://wp.missouristate.edu/Admissions/Residency.htm and from the office of admissions.
