Undergraduate Funding

Our campus participates in the Midwest Student Exchange Program (MSEP) - a multi-state tuition reciprocity program. Through the MSEP, public institutions agree to charge students no more than 150% of the in-state resident tuition rate for specific programs.

Details may be found at this site:

Beginning in Fall 2016, through the use of the MSEP award to offset the nonresident tuition rate, students who are legal residents of Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota and Wisconsin will pay no more than 150% of the in-state resident tuition rate. Students eligible for the MSEP will receive an "admission-based scholarship" and will be eligible for additional funding through the program.

The museum studies program does not offer direct financial support for undergraduates, but students in the undergraduate certificate program are encouraged to seek support through the Office of Student Financial Aid Services and the Office of Student Scholarships.
