The TigerView campus visitation program brings prospective graduate students with a serious interest in pursuing a graduate degree at Mizzou to our campus for a two-day visit filled with workshops, informational presentations, visits with campus resources and programs, and networking opportunities.
Every fall semester, CIE sponsors a campus visitation program for prospective students who are genuinely interested in pursuing graduate school, and have an interest in one of MU’s graduate programs. Members of racial or ethnic groups that are underrepresented in graduate education (Black/African American, American Indian, Alaska Native, Hispanic/Latino, or Native Pacific Islander) and/or first generation college students are encouraged to apply. Travel expenses, accommodations, and meals during their time in Columbia, MO are provided by the program.
2019 TigerView will be September 30 and October 1, 2019. Application deadline is June 21, 2019 at 5 p.m. Central Time.Learn More

Selected participants will attend seminars and workshops and complete assignments that encompass a wide array of topics.
The program also provides students who miss no more than one Glimpse seminar session and/or assignment (or combination as described in the syllabus) are eligible for an application fee waiver for graduate school at the University of Missouri. Also, students who attend all Glimpse sessions and complete all required assignments will be eligible to receive a one-time refund of the cost of a standardized test required for admission to a graduate program. In the case of the GRE (Graduate Record Examination) this refund does not include any costs students may incur for General Subject tests, late fees, or test date change fees. In order to receive a refund for the standardized test, students must provide proof that the test has been taken.
