** The Missouri Senior Scholarship rate is for Missouri seniors age 65 and older. The student must register by phone, email, or in-person at an STLCC location on the Friday before classes begin. Seniors who register prior to the Friday before classes begin will be responsible for paying the standard senior rate, and may not switch to the senior scholarship rate.

The Senior Scholarship offers the opportunity to audit classes on a space available basis. Auditing students are not required to take examinations. Audited classes carry no credit and do not count as a part of one’s course load. Completing an audit of a class carries no implication concerning class attendance or skill accomplishment. Students who audit a class must meet all the academic prerequisites for regular registration in the course. Visit Missouri Senior Scholarship Registration for details on the registration periods.

Am I a resident?

You’re eligible to enroll as a resident if you live in the City of St. Louis, St. Louis County and portions of Franklin and Jefferson counties included in the Meramec Valley R-III and Rockwood R-6 school districts.

If you live in Missouri, but aren’t part of our home district, you’re eligible for the in-state (other Missouri resident) rate.

Do you live in the Midwest, but not in Missouri? You may still pay in-state costs! Learn more

STLCC partners with the MidWest Student Exchange Program (MSEP) to offer in-state tuition to students from eight Midwestern states.

How to pay my tuition


 Log into Banner Self-Service to pay your maintenance fees in full with a credit or debit card. You can also pay directly from your bank account online.

In person

 Stop by your campus Cashier’s Office to pay for your semester in full. See below for contact information.

Payment Plan

 Our NBS Payment Plan lets you pay for the fall and spring semesters over a period of time for a small fee.

When do I pay tuition

Maintenance fees are due before the term begins. If you register for a class after the deadline has passed, you’ll pay for your class when you sign up. If you pay your balance in full and have a hold on your account, please allow up to one business day for financial holds to be released.
