LSTC has a list of rental properties in the community. This list is provided as a courtesy to students. LSTC is not responsible for availability, quality, or rates. Contact Admissions for a copy.
- Apply early for Scholarships & Tuition
LSTC has scholarships and tuition waivers available for incoming freshmen. There is a separate application you will need to complete. You may mail in a paper copy or apply online at www.linnstate.edu.
Tuition Waivers waive tuition only. Should outside funding become available, it will take precedence over the college tuition waiver. Priority deadline for tuition waivers is May 1 for fall enrollment and December 1 for spring enrollment. If you will be receiving A+ benefits, you will not be eligible for LSTC internal tuition waivers.
Scholarships are corporate, endowed and privately sponsored and are often program specific. Check the scholarship application to see if you are eligible to apply for these scholarships. Deadline is February 15 unless otherwise noted.

Financial aid is available in the form of grants, loans and work study.

Four to six weeks before classes begin you will receive a bill for your charges. Your bill is due on the first day of classes.
LSTC offers a payment plan option which allows you to pay your charges (tuition, fees, and on-campus room and board) in monthly installments. To participate in the payment plan you have to sign up ahead of time. Contact the Cashier for more details.
- Watch for your room assignment.
If you have an on-campus housing application on file with LSTC, the Resident Manager will mail you information about your room and roommate assignment. Frequently, students are placed on waiting lists for a room due to the high number of housing applications received.
- Submit final official transcripts.
We need a final official high school transcript, GED score report, or college transcript in your file. To be final, it cannot be a faxed copy. It must be mailed directly to LSTC from your school. The high school transcript must include the date of graduation and the seal/stamp from your high school.

LSTC has more than 225 agreements with most area career centers in Missouri. Credits from these schools may apply toward your degree.
To receive this credit you’ll need to have your career center instructor send in the articulation forms. If you have questions, contact our Registrar.
