About MSU

Students at Missouri State University’s West Plains campus attend a university and a two-year school at the same time.

The West Plains campus, the only two-year degree-granting division of the university, offers associate’s degrees as well as certificates. Education, business, computer science, general studies and nursing are some of the subject areas in which students may secure a degree.

However, MSU still remains a university and therefore offers bachelor’s and baster’s degrees through its academic outreach program. There are also programs offered in nursing, computer science, education and business as well as counseling and agriculture.

Boasting the benefits of a two-year school and a university, MSU West Plains features the tuition rates of a two-year school and the student life of a four-year school, including on-campus housing.

Whether a student wishes to obtain a two-year or four-year degree while at MSU West Plains, the career center can provide support by helping students carve out a career path. Career services also hosts student interviews with local employers throughout the year.

Other on-campus services in place for the school’s roughly 2,000 students include academic advising, tutoring, numerous student organizations and activities as well as financial aid offerings for those who qualify.

Student Ratings

Overall Rating

I could not imagine going to school anywhere other than Missouri State West Plains. They find way that make it easy to pay for college and EVERYTHING you need to complete your degree can easily be found on campus. Whether you need books and other school supplies (found at the Drago College Store) or you need a quiet place to study, take tests, and find information (at the campus library) they have it. The civics center right off the campus has a weights gym, basketball court, and indoor pool! There is also a student center on campus that has some similar things as well as many rec rooms with pool tables and video games. This college has sports such as basketball and volleyball. But if you are not a sports person there is still something for you! Forensics, Chess, Anime... with hundreds of clubs there are many for you.
