Attention: Senior Students that are Planning to attend MSU this fall!


Missouri State University Admissions Office


With May 1st fast approaching, I’m writing to provide you with an important Missouri State University policy update that impacts your senior MSU admits!

Confirmation fee required for new students

Beginning with the fall 2018 incoming class, there is a required $125 confirmation fee for new students that both confirms their enrollment and covers the cost of their SOAR (Summer Orientation) session. The $125 fee is refundable if the student cancels their application by May 1st.

If you know of any students planning to attend Missouri State this fall, please encourage them to submit their confirmation fee as soon as they can or have them contact the Admissions Office about deferring the fee if the cost is a hardship.

College Decision Day grants

If your school is considering a College Decision Day around May 1st but concerned about cost, I want to bring these NACAC Decision Day Grants to your attention.

We are happy to help however we can, so don’t hesitate to reach out!

NCAA Eligibility Center




Free NCAA/NFHS Partnership Initial-Eligibility Online Course

The NCAA Eligibility Center, in partnership with the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), has updated the NCAA Initial-Eligibility Course available through Counselors and coaches can visit  and complete the FREE initial-eligibility course. This interactive course familiarizes viewers with Division I and II academic requirements, as well as the Eligibility Center’s registration and certification processes required for college-bound student-athletes. It’s a great tool for you and your colleagues. Please pass it on!


Test Score Submission

For a student's academic certification to be processed, the student must have ACT or SAT scores submitted to the Eligibility Center directly from the testing agency. Test scores on a high school transcript will not be used. Students may take the ACT or the SAT an unlimited number of times prior to full-time collegiate enrollment, and the best score will be used in the final academic certification. Test scores are matched to the student's Eligibility Center account by name, date of birth and address.

Note: If a student took the SAT prior to or during March 2016 and then takes the current (redesigned SAT), the Eligibility Center will not combine section scores from the pre-March 2016 version and the current (redesigned) SAT when determining a student's initial eligibility. The Eligibility Center will only combine section scores from the same version of the test. Because the current SAT varies in design and measures different academic concepts than the previous SAT version (March 2016 and earlier), a numerical score on the current test may not be equivalent to the same numerical score on the redesigned test.

Please refer to the Division I Quick Reference Sheet or the Division II Quick Reference Sheet to help your students determine the core-course grade point average needed that meets their SAT or ACT sum score. 

High School Transcript Upload

To date, over 18,000 high schools have used the transcript upload feature available through the High School Portal to send more than 897,000 transcripts to the Eligibility Center.

We encourage you to continue using the upload feature for all preliminary and final transcripts for your students, as it significantly reduces processing time for student accounts. As a reminder, only transcripts in a PDF file format may be uploaded through the High School Portal. Any other document types will not be reviewed and could potentially hold up a student's evaluation. Also, when students register with the Eligibility Center, the student must accept the terms and conditions, which provides broad permission for all schools to share official high school transcripts and academic records with the Eligibility Center. Please click  here to access a video tutorial on how to upload transcripts to the Eligibility Center.
The Guide for the College-Bound Student-Athlete is our most comprehensive student resource.
Our Initial-Eligibility Brochure provides a general overview of the NCAA Eligibility Center requirements. 
Students can learn which NCAA division may be right for them by comparing the three NCAA divisions.

Applications Due: Friday, April 20, 2018









Dear Counselors and Educators: 
Now more than ever, high school students are learning about the high demand for careers in the health field, but many are often unprepared for the rigors of health professions training or are not developing the personal portfolio needed to gain acceptance to competitive programs such as medical, dental, nursing or pharmacy schools. 
Our goal as an AHEC is to expose as many students as possible to the options within healthcare and help them reach their career goals. Please read on to learn about the free and low-cost resources we can provide teachers and students including our program that brings workshops on the road to your classroom!



Healthcare Career Presentations


team 4 002



AHEC provides information that promotes and educates students about the broad spectrum of healthcare careers and educational opportunities. This is an adaptable presentation (typically about 45-50 minutes) that explores different options in healthcare today and explains what these professionals do every day in their jobs. Health Career Guides by the Missouri Hospital Association and other handout materials are offered to interested students, as well. This is great for careers/health occupations classes, A&P, health, biology, or other science/math courses. For our workshops on the road, this is usually where we start with our first school visit.





New! Hands-On Medical Workshops Coming to your Classroom!


DSC 1314




IMG 0720





This year we are continuing a program we’ve now offered for four years that involves taking our hands-on workshops on the road. We realized that with our previous model we were unable to reach all the rural and/or underserved (rural or urban) students in our region, especially the ones that are more than an hour drive from our hub sites in Springfield and Bolivar. AHEC is a great resource for your school and we would love to create a partnership by coming to you and assisting students of all demographics.

IMG 1231



Some of the workshops/trainings we can offer at your school include:

·         Health Careers Presentations and discussions related to preparing for a career in healthcare with handouts and other preparatory materials- usually we do this one first as an introduction to the following opportunities!

·         BLS/CPR training and/or certification

o   (certification of up to 9 students @ $15/student- takes 4 hours total)

o   Training without certification is free

·         First Aid training and/or certification

o   (certification of up to 20 students @ $15/student- takes 3.5 hours total)

o   Training without certification is free

·         Disaster Simulation and Triage Training

·         Emergency Preparedness Training

·         Infection control with gowning/gloving and proper hand-washing activities

·         Injections and Phlebotomy/Blood Draw training- Max of 15 students unless a school nurse or community member can assist

·         Nutrition topics throughout the life span (Topics to include proper nutrition for growth and development, brain function, sports activities, in disease, maternal and infant nutrition, consequences of sedentary lifestyle and inadequate nutrition and others upon request)

·         Animal Dissections over assorted body systems with pathology and treatments discussed (The school or students must cover the cost of the specimens and we will instruct. We have all dissection trays/instruments for up to 30 students and they can be brought upon request [usually specimens run $13 to $15 and up to 3 students can share])

·         Oral Health Activities

·         Preparation for college selection and what students can do now to better prepare themselves for their desired college or university. (We also love joining you for college/career fairs!)

·         Healthe Foundations Training: students learn about the most preventable chronic diseases in the U.S. and how they are treated by a healthcare team. Students then prepare a health plan presentation to help their “virtual” patient get on track to a healthy future. (This training is completed in cooperation with the First Hand Foundation and requires an MOU with the foundation. It is best completed over several days or one full day (can be aSaturday if need be). See separate flyer on this really neat training!

Note: We are always working to develop more workshops and trainings! Have an idea? Please let us know and we will work with you to develop it!




Nutrition Presentations


Nutrition presentations are available on any nutrition topic you choose/need to meet requirements. As a registered dietitian, I am qualified to teach students on virtually any nutrition topic. I have visited many health, early childhood, development, and nutrition classes. Help your students learn about nutrition in a fun and engaging way.

On Friday October 6th, Drury University’s Hammons School of Architecture will host our annual DRURY ARCHITECTURE DAY event, for which I have attached an invitation that you can distribute to your students. This is an all-day event that allows high-school students interested in studying architecture to learn about our program, spend time in the design studios with our students, and tour area architectural offices.

We think that a broad range of your students might be interested in a career in architecture. Although many assume that you have to be great at math to do architecture, or you to have to draw well, or take drafting classes, in reality there are all kinds of students who can do well both academically and professionally as architects. In particular, our school seeks students who are creative problem solvers and strong conceptual thinkers. As a professional program in a strong liberal-arts setting, our focus is on the broad education of our architecture students—preparing them to be flexible, to communicate well, and to excel as leaders.

I hope you will consider passing on the invitation to any of your students who you think might be interested. We would also be happy to arrange a presentation at your school if you have classes that might be curious about architecture as a career.

Mercy - Alive at 25 - Defensive Driving Course
Proven To Help Teach Young Adults To Drive Safe And Responsibly

Alive at 25 is a highly-interactive course developed by the National Safety Council that helps young adults under the age of 25 take greater responsibility for their driving by focusing on behavior, judgment, and decision making.

  • “Opened my eyes to how dangerous driving really is.”
  • “Made me more aware of what I am able to control in my driving.”
  • “Brings fresh information to the forefront of my mind to help me really be prepared before I hit the road.”

 - Geographic background, such as region, rural, suburban, urban
 - Socioeconomic and educational background, such as academic excellence and/or whether an individual would be a first generation college student
 - Cultural knowledge and language abilities, with particular emphasis on cultures and languages of strategic importance to the Air Force
 - Work background, including prior enlisted service
 - Physical abilities, including athletic prowess
 - Age, though applicants must be within statutory parameters for academy attendance

We take a holistic view of our applicants.  They're more than a GPA or standardized test score.  We're looking for students who have a desire to serve and seek an education that is on par with highly selective colleges and universities.   For our top diversity candidates, we offer the Falcon Visitation Experience.  This opportunity gives prospective students an opportunity to spend three days on our campus to get a first-hand look at what United States Air Force Academy life is like.  If you have students who may be a good fit for this program, please have them talk to their admissions advisor (
