2023 MOACAC Show-Me Tour


Sunday, July 9 – Thursday, July 13, 2023

The MOACAC Show-Me Tour, open to all college counselors in the US and abroad, showcases Missouri’s colleges and universities. This year’s tour includes the following schools:

Registration Cost: $500
  • Costs Included: Single room accommodations in St. Louis, Columbia, and Branson, transportation from hotel and back to all participating colleges and universities, bus transportation between each college visit, and breakfast, lunch, and dinner during all events.
  • Costs NOT Included (paid by the participant): All meals outside planned events, round-trip airfare to and from to your home airport, transportation to and from the St. Louis airport, hotel accommodations in St. Louis Thursday night (7/13/23), and any hotel upgrades.

To maintain the quality of the tour, for both counselors and host institutions, we are limiting the capacity to 25 counselors. Attendees are expected to take part in all planned activities through the end of the tour. Counselors who choose to attend the tour will agree to arrive in St. Louis on Sunday, July 9, stay in the arranged hotel through the end of the tour and depart no earlier than the evening of Thursday, July 13. Prior to the tour, participating counselors will be required to provide a copy of their confirmed flight itinerary to Anna Whitlow, Show-Me Tour Chair, at [email protected].

Cancellation Policy

MOACAC will refund the Show-Me Tour registration fee minus a $50 processing fee when written notice is given 30 or more calendar days prior to the event start date. No refunds will be given after 30 or fewer calendar days to the event start date. If we do not reach minimum capacity, we reserve the right to cancel the tour and will refund tour registration fees. If we do have to cancel, we will refund your registration fee but we are not responsible for reimbursing travel costs.
