Attention All Missouri Bright Flight and Access Missouri Recipients

A new Missouri law, HB 1549, effective Aug. 28, 2008, requires public colleges and universities to verify that recipients of state educational funds are lawfully present in the United States. 

If you have been awarded one of these state programs for the fall semester, you must provide “affirmative proof” of U.S. citizenship, permanent residency or other lawful presence in the U.S.   A valid Missouri driver’s license is sufficient.  If you have completed I-9 clearance for student employment, you have met “affirmative proof” requirements. 

If you have questions, please contact Kathy Elsea at 785.4130 or e-mail
