Dress Code

What is the appropriate dress?

Though we have some guidelines, Missouri Scholars Academy does not maintain a strict dress code. Students should choose appropriate clothing for the weather and activity.

Required Dress Guidelines:

  • Every scholar is required to wear his/her academy name tag, prominently displayed on the upper torso, for the duration of the academy. Name tags may not be altered without the approval of residential life staff.
  • Shoes must be worn at all times when a scholar is away from his/her assigned floor in the residence hall.
  • Pajamas and/or sleepwear may not be worn anywhere other than the scholar’s assigned floor in the residence hall.
  • The opening ceremony and closing convocation are semi-formal events requiring scholars to dress nicely, what might be called “business casual.”

Recommended clothing items include:

  • Please bring appropriate clothing for typical Missouri weather in June! Scholars will be shuttling between air-conditioned classrooms and outdoor activities.
  • Closed-toe shoes are required for some activities during the academy.

Prohibited clothing items include:

  • clothing items with inappropriate, offensive, or unhealthy language or logos
  • clothing items that do not constantly cover the undergarments
