Current Sponsored Students

Sponsored Student Services has a dedicated team available to support sponsored students and their sponsoring agencies. We are here to help students succeed academically and enjoy a cultural experience while studying at Missouri S&T. The Sponsored Student Services staff is available for walk-in meetings and virtual advising sessions.

Schedule an appointment on S&T Connect through Canvas, or email us at iasss@mst.edu.

Our office must always have a valid financial guarantee from your sponsor. It is your responsibility to monitor the expiration date of your scholarship letter and submit an updated copy to iasss@mst.edu.

The financial guarantee must be formally addressed to Missouri S&T, and must include the following information:

  • Student’s name
  • Duration of sponsorship validity
  • Approved major and degree level
  • List of expenses covered by the sponsor that should be invoiced
  • Sponsor’s billing information, including contact name, mailing address, and email address

Invoices for tuition and fees will be sent directly to your sponsoring agency for payment. Personal charges to your student account are your responsibility. For payment schedules and information about late fees and finance charges, visit the Cashier’s Office website

If you are unable to provide a valid financial guarantee, you must submit a personal financial statement to maintain your immigration status.

Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent enrollment allows you to take courses at another school while enrolled at Missouri S&T. All required classes are available at Missouri S&T; however, the University may allow transfer credits from accredited institutions. Your scholarship requirements may restrict concurrent enrollment.

Your academics are a top priority while at Missouri S&T, but it is also important to learn and experience American culture. Sponsored Student Services hosts numerous events and trips throughout the year. We have gone to the St. Louis Arch, Elephant Rock State Park, and hosted a traditional American Thanksgiving meal. Each week, we host a Sponsored Student Coffee Talk, where we meet, chat, and drink coffee. Most trips are free for sponsored students. Family members may be welcome to participate in a few of these events throughout the year.

Notices about trips and events are sent via email. There is usually a sign-up form, so be sure to submit it if you plan to attend an event.

Sponsored students have access to a local shuttle service in Rolla, which provides transportation for local shopping and errands. The shuttle schedule is posted each month. If you have questions,  email iasss@mst.edu.  

International students are required to have health insurance. If your sponsor provides approved medical health insurance, you will be waived from the university health insurance. We must receive a copy of an approved coverage plan from your sponsor before you are waived from the university insurance.

 

If your sponsor does not provide health insurance, you will be automatically enrolled in the university health insurance. Depending on your scholarship, the charge will be added to your student account or billed to your sponsor.

For questions about university health insurance, please contact iainsure@mst.edu or visit the Insurance Services page.
