Registration, Financial Aid, and Billing

Hi, my name is Katie Tucker and I work in the Registrar’s Office at Missouri S&T. We are located in 103 Parker Hall and we are responsible for all academic records at Missouri S&T. To stay up to date with current information, use our website, and I would also  recommend you follow us on Facebook and Twitter @SandTRegistrar and browse our S&T website.

We provide services both in office and online. These include: official transcripts, enrollment verifications  certification letters commonly used for insurance purposes, academic calendar information, student academic regulations, catalog, schedule of classes, and more. We also have a VA representative and Missouri Residency expert on our staff.  We have a secure document up loader and forms online students will possibly need in their time here.

Joe’SS is our online student system. Students will use Joe’SS to access their grade information (both midterm and final), request unofficial transcripts, evaluate transfer credit, change their address, register for their classes, access their degree audit (a tool used for advising), can access TouchNet through Joe’SS to submit payment for student fees, and more.

FERPA is the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act and is a federal law that went into effect in 1974. Students have the right to restrict information and have some control over the disclosure of their information. We can only release directory information – address, name, and that they are enrolled/or not enrolled. We cannot release grades, schedules, or transcripts without written consent of the student. Students can grant others Additional Authorized Access (AAA) through Joe’SS and can select Student Account Information, Academic Information, Financial Aid Information and Directory Information to be released to authorized users. More information on how to complete this is listed on the Registrar’s Office website under the Joe’SS tab.

I personally process the graduate forms 1-7 our graduate students submit to Graduate Studies while attending S&T.  These forms are all housed here in our office under each student’s academic record.

A friendly reminder from our friends in Admissions; please ensure you send in your final college or university transcripts as soon as possible. Official transcripts must be sent from the college or university and not the student.  If you have any questions let us know.

You can reach us via phone or email.  Thank you and welcome to Missouri S&T!

Thank you and welcome to Missouri S&T!

By now many of you have completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) which is used to determine eligibility for need-based aid as well as Federal Student Loans.

Just a tip* If you are unsure about applying to the federal government for financial aid, you can try a tool called the FAFSA4Caster, where you can answer questions for an estimated result without giving your personal private information. Remember – some scholarships do require it.

The FAFSA opens October 1 each year for the following academic school year. The Department of Education usually has a few wrinkles to iron out with their technology. If you go to a Federal Student Aid (FSA) site, and you experience issues, you may need to come back to it later.  

You should complete your FAFSA before February 1st each year to meet the priority deadline for certain types of limited financial aid.

The Department of Ed may require you to provide additional information to the Financial Aid Office, and so, sometimes students will need to follow-up with us if we request any additional information.

  • First-time students receive a paper letter but will receive financial aid offers by email in future years. It’s important for students to verify their Missouri S&T email account is activated today as that is the official platform for communication by the Student Financial Assistance Office from here forward.    
  • With your paper letter, look for the enclosed Financial Aid Guide for more information and guidance about your next steps.  
  • The Financial Aid Offer Letter will include an estimated Cost of Attendance (COA) for the upcoming 20-21 year, which includes cost estimates for tuition & fees, housing & dining, and other personal expenses. Because the Board of Curators approves tuition & fee rates each June, we will communicate any updates to cost estimates via S&T email over the summer.
  • The cost of attendance is not necessarily the exact amount you will see on your bill, but rather it is an estimate of annual costs which a student may need to consider.
  • Students are able to view financial aid offers in Joe’SS, and the first billing notices will be sent by the Cashier’s Office on or around July 15th. Once you have your first bill, you may want to follow-up if you need more resources. We will talk more about billing in a moment.

Graduate students often find funding opportunities through fellowships. A listing of some opportunities for fellowships can be found through these links:

Graduate students often have questions about funding opportunities and structure. More information about funding can be found through the below link:

  • The Cashier’s Office will not mail paper notifications. Students will be notified of billing electronically each term. When the bill is posted, students receive an S&T email directing them to the TouchNet System for billing information. If a parent or family member also wants an email notification, the student must setup an “Authorized Payer” in the Touchnet System.
  • Bills are generated around the 15th of every month starting in July, and payment is due on the 10th of the following month. 
  • You may pay the amount due in full or make a minimum payment each month for up to 4 months. There is a 1% finance charge on balances if you make monthly payments.

If you have questions:

  • We encourage you to communicate with your student about emails they receive from our office and others like Cashier. S&T Email is the official communication method of the SFAO.
  • Your student can contact The Student Financial Assistance Office and make appointments if needed. You can find us downstairs in Parker Hall or visit the Student Financial Assistance site.
  • We are on Facebook and Twitter, where we post information throughout the year! You can sure follow us if you would like to stay informed on financial aid trends.

Not only do they have educational discounted pricing, but their Dell Latitude series comes with a 4 year complete care warranty, which includes accidental damage – even if the laptop is dropped from a moving vehicle (don’t ask how we know this!). IT Help Desk Techs are certified to repair computers and loaner laptops are provided during repair if needed. The S&T Store has a Student Computer Purchase Plan program which spreads the payments out over 4 semesters, with no accruing interest rate.
  • The S&T Store also offers Apple computers and iPads with accidental warranty coverage available for purchase.
  • Mac verses Windows – whatever you are used to. Nothing is specified or required by any degree program


  • We realize that college is expensive and textbooks add to that expense so we have some tips to save money.

  • AutoAccess Books. AutoAccess is a collaboration between the professor, the publisher and The S&T Store to provide required materials automatically when you enroll in the course at a reduced cost. 
  • Use our Textbook Shop & Compare web site When you search for textbooks at on web site you will see the price not only from us but also from other online vendors such as, and others. This will also insure you have the correct ISBN textbook number. (We cannot guarantee the accuracy of course materials from other online vendors.) You can have the textbooks shipped to you or select in store pick up.
  • At the end of each semester, we host “Book Sellback”.  During this time you can bring your textbooks by the store and we will buy it back if the department is reusing that book for the next semester. You can also return your rental books at this time.

Research data is an important asset of the University.  The RDA team offers a program to provide support for research efforts. 

The RDA team will provide computing resource support for data acquisition, data storage, data management, data wrangling, data modeling, data mining and data visualization along with the human resources to advance scholarship and research.

The RDA team can provide appropriate data security and preservation.  The RDA team will provide continuity when a researcher graduates and another researcher continues the effort.

The need for our services is not limited to the engineering disciplines.  Scholars in the sciences, humanities and social sciences also require this type of support.
