To remain eligible for the program, MoLSAMP Scholars must:
- complete STEM 101 Integrated Freshman Seminar and STEM 105 or 110 Inquiry Seminar during their first fall term on campus;
- continue to make satisfactory progress toward a degree in science or math, maintaining a 2.5 GPA or above and passing all science and math courses with a C or higher;

With support from the National Science Foundation, the MoLSAMP Scholars program is another way the Truman’s STEP Office is supporting our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) degree programs to increase degree production to meet the economic development needs of Missouri, America, and the community of Truman alumni.
