To The Top
The University of Missouri, along with hundreds of other U.S. universities, is a signatory to the Council of Graduate Schools' Resolution regarding offering and accepting University financial support (e.g., scholarship, fellowship, assistantship).

Students are under no obligation to respond to offers of financial support for the coming academic year before April 15.

When a student accepts an offer before this date and subsequently desires to withdraw that acceptance, the student may submit in writing a resignation of the appointment at any time.

However, an acceptance given or left in force after April 15 commits the student not to accept another offer of financial support until they have informed the program of the withdrawal in writing.
