PRO Checklist

Congratulations on being admitted to Missouri S&T!

To ensure a smooth transition to Missouri S&T for the Fall 2017 semester, here's a good outline to follow. Much of the information referenced can be found in your acceptance packet (the folder mailed to all admitted students).

If at any point you feel lost or overwhelmed, relax! Call or email your admissions counselor or contact the New Student Programs office at 573-341-4025, 1-800-266-9035 or pro@mst.edu, and we'll help you through the process.

After you've registered for PRO, review your confirmation brochure and schedule (sent via email) before your PRO date.

Registering for PRO reserves your place in our freshman class. Priority registration is May 1, 2017 and you may register online at any time.

When you come to campus for your PRO date, bring a list of questions you may have about Missouri S&T. You'll have the opportunity to meet an academic advisor, register for classes, take your math placement test, get your student ID card, and more.

During PRO, you will take the math placement test to assist you in selecting appropriate math courses for your first semester at S&T. To prepare, review algebra and trigonometry prior to your PRO session. Calculators are not permitted. These exams are designed to see what you have learned in high school and determine which college courses are appropriate for your skill level. Placement exams are designed to start easy and progress to more difficult problems. The following are some tips that will help you prepare for the math placement test:

  • Use your high school algebra and trigonometry text books to review prior to your PRO session
  • Check out this MOOC for more math preparedness
  • Attend our Math reviews sessions the night prior to PRO in BCH 125 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. (Excludes summer PRO sessions.)

Your placement scores, high school transcript, college coursework and ACT/SAT test results will be reviewed by a math advisor to determine your course placement.

Students who will earn a bachelor of arts degree in Economics, English, History, or Multidisciplinary Studies are not required to take the math placement test.

The date that we receive your University Residence Hall Application and Agreement as part of your online PRO registration, with the paid enrollment deposit, determines your priority number for your housing agreement. This is not a commitment to a particular housing choice or meal; it only assigns your housing priority.

The Housing Interest Form (HIF) will be available on Joe'SS once you have completed the Residence Hall Application and Agreement. You will be notified through your S&T email address when the HIF is available to complete. On the HIF, you may list your preferences for specific living arrangements, dining plans and request roommates. (Students may request a roommate or be assigned a roommate. Roommate requests are honored when possible and must be mutual.) Residential Hall rates are listed on the ResLife website.

The deadline to submit the Housing Interest Form and retain your priority is May 15. In late June, a room notification will be emailed to you with instructions to check your Joe'SS account to find your room assignment. 

Instructions for completing the Housing Interest Form

We have included some helpful links regarding Campus Housing:

New Student Medical Requirements

For additional questions, please contact Student Health at 573-341-4284.

Financial Aid is awarded based on merit, need or both. To be considered for need-based aid, you must complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) at fafsa.gov.

S&T FAFSA priority deadline is February 1. S&T's FAFSA CODE: 002517

FAFSA Frequently Asked Questions

Accepting financial aid awards

Students who submit a FAFSA by February 1 receive their award letter in late March that will detail all federal, state and university aid for which they qualify. Students who submit a FAFSA after February 1 are processed in turn. Once you receive your award letter, visit joess.mst.edu to accept/decline and review all awards you have been offered.

Your Financial Aid Counselor

S&T students have personal financial aid counselors assigned by the first letter of their last name. If you have questions contact your counselor at 573-341-4282 or schedule an appointment at sfa.mst.edu.

Scholarships

Admitted students who qualify for S&T's merit-based scholarships are notified shortly after being admitted. However, there are many ways to earn scholarship dollars!

Use scholarships.mst.edu and reputable national scholarship search websites to research scholarship opportunities. All scholarships opportunities are stackable meaning that we welcome outside awards from local scholarships and scholarships from outside organizations. Speak with your high school guidance counselor about scholarship opportunities in your community.

Final Transcripts

Once you've graduated from high school, ask your high school to send final transcripts to S&T Admissions:

S&T Admissions
106 Parker Hall
300 W. 13th Street
Rolla, MO 65409-1060

If you've taken dual enrollment courses, or received college credit for college-level classes taken prior to graduating high school, request final transcripts from each college from which you've received credit. We will not be able to accept official transcripts in person the day of your PRO day.

For additional questions, contact the Admissions Office at 800-522-0938 or email admissions.mst.edu.

Billing

All enrolled students at S&T receive their billing statements electronically. The Cashier's Office will produce monthly billing statements with the amount that is due on or before the 15th of the following month. The statement lists any previous balances carried forward as well as new activity. The total due indicates the amount due each month, which is the total balance currently owed to the university minus any anticipated aid for the current term.

The university offers an installment plan option on each monthly billing statement and will be listed as the minimum payment due. For early registered students, the first bill for the fall semester will be sent electronically  at the end of June and the first payment is due July 15 for early registered students. Information regarding tuition and fees, billing, payment options, installments, finance charges, late fees, etc. is available at cashier.mst.edu.

Students who attend a PRO session in February through June will receive a fall semester fee statement online in late June. All scholarship and financial aid awards will be applied to your account at this time. A minimum payment of 1/5th of your unpaid balance is due to the Cashier's Office by July 15, 2017 to ensure that your scheduled classes are reserved. Students who attend the August PRO session must pay 1/3 of their unpaid balance by September 15, 2017.

For additional questions, contact the Cashier's Office at 573-341-4195.

Disability Support Services

A disability does not have to be a barrier to a student's success. The staff of Disability Support Services understands the unique challenges a student with a disability faces and our goal is to provide reasonable and appropriate accommodative services to ensure equal access to all that Missouri S&T offers. Individuals with disabilities are requested to contact Disability Support Services at least two weeks prior to their PRO session to enable S&T to provide reasonable accommodations for the program, including the placement test.

For more information, or for questions, contact 573-341-6655.

Miner Card ID (student ID card)

All new S&T freshmen receive their first Miner Card ID at no charge. To receive your Miner Card on your PRO day, bring one of the following forms of documentation with you:

  • Current driver's license or military ID
  • Official Missouri identification card
  • U.S. birth certificate
  • Passport

To ensure campus safety, it is against policy for us to issue cards unless one of these forms of identification is presented.

Parking

If you're planning to bring a vehicle with you, you'll learn more about parking at PRO. Parking permit sign-up is online through the parking website beginning May 1st. For additional information, visit the parking website or call 573-341-4303.
