    Consider in-state tuition and tuition reciprocity 

    In-state tuition allows residents of a state to receive cheaper tuition for a college or university in their state. Additionally, many universities and colleges reserve scholarships and financial aid for in-state students, which helps reduce the cost of attending college for those who live there.

    Here are a few well-known Mississippi universities and their in-state vs out-of-state tuition costs:

    University of Mississippi 

    • In-state tuition: $9,252
    • Out-of-state tuition: $26,820

    Mississippi State University

    • In-state tuition: $9,815
    • Out-of-state tuition: $26,580

    How do you get in-state tuition? 

    Having in-state residency status in Mississippi can significantly reduce the cost of tuition for Mississippi colleges and universities. In order to become a Mississippi resident for tuition purposes you will need to  be over the age of 21 and physically reside in the state of Mississippi for at least 12 consecutive months prior to enrolling in college or university. Additionally, you will need to show proof and intention of abandoning your former domicile and remaining in Mississippi permanently. This can be done by obtaining a Mississippi driver’s license, registering your vehicle in Mississippi, and paying taxes to the state of Mississippi. 

    Every Mississippi college and university may have slightly different requirements for obtaining residency for tuition purposes. Therefore, be sure to double check with your intended Mississippi institution on their requirements.

    Does Mississippi offer tuition reciprocity? 

    Yes, Mississippi is a member of the Academic Common Market, which is a tuition reciprocity agreement among select Southern States. Double check with your intended Mississippi institution to determine if they participate!
