Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many colleges have suspended or relaxed some admitted student requirements and extended decision and enrollment deposit deadlines. We recommend that you contact the colleges to which you have been accepted directly for the most updated and accurate information.

Truman State University, founded in 1867, is a public, liberal arts university. It is a highly selective undergraduate liberals arts and sciences institution that offers small classes and opportunities for research and "experienceships" not possible at larger campuses. Its resources - including time, energy, money, equipment, facilities and faculty - are reserved for undergraduates, making the atmosphere similar to that of a small honors college. Truman is proud to be an uncommon public institution, offering a nationally ranked liberal arts education at an affordable cost. Its 140-acre campus, with its Georgian and contemporary buildings, is located in downtown Kirksville.
