Starting a historic 2024

I want to welcome all students, faculty and staff to a new semester!

Though 2024 just began, momentum is already building for next fall. More than 21,500 students have applied to become Tigers. That’s a record-setting pace and 14% higher than last year.

Students in Missouri and around the country are discovering the value of a Mizzou education. Our high graduation rate (76%) and retention rate (91.3%), industry-leading alumni and affordable tuition make us a top choice for future leaders. We’re also the seventh best value of all flagship universities, according to U.S. News & World Report.

Thank you for being a part of Mizzou. I’m looking forward to a great semester and another outstanding year.
