MS State Out-of-State Tuition?

Looking into Mississippi State as a potential college for next year, but I'm an out-of-state student. Anyone have some info on the out-of-state tuition costs? Are there scholarships available for out-of-state applicants?

Mississippi State University (MS State) does have a different tuition structure for out-of-state students. For the 2024-2025 academic year, the estimated tuition and fees for out-of-state students are $24,214 per year. This cost does not include other expenses, such as housing, meals, and books.

Regarding scholarships for out-of-state applicants, MS State offers a variety of merit-based opportunities to help reduce the financial burden. One such scholarship is the Non-Resident Academic Scholarship, which provides awards ranging from $4,000 to $10,000 per year for out-of-state students based on academic performance and test scores. Additionally, the Colvard Future Leader Scholarship is open to out-of-state students (both U.S. citizens and permanent residents) who have demonstrated leadership potential. This scholarship provides an award of up to $32,000 over four years.

Mississippi State also offers the Compass Scholarship, which can waive the out-of-state portion of tuition, and the Presidential Partnership Scholarship, which can provide awards up to the full cost of attendance for select students in partnership with their local community or high school.

To maximize your potential for receiving scholarships, be sure to submit a complete application, including your transcript, test scores (if applicable), and any additional materials required by the specific scholarship programs you're interested in. Make sure you are aware of the scholarship deadlines, as they may differ from the general admissions deadlines.

I recommend visiting Mississippi State's financial aid website and exploring their scholarship opportunities to find the most appropriate options for your situation. Good luck with your college search!
