Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.60 Average Rating
I love Delta State University, and I would not trade my education or friends here for anything. My teachers are all wonderful and extremely intelligent. My friends are all different, but we all have our similiarities. My experience here, so far, has been amazing. I would recommend Delta State to anyone and everyone trying to decide on a college.
Magnolia from Hernando, MS
You definitely get what you pay for at DSU. It may seem a little in the dumps to some, but it is definitely a place of pride in the delta community.
Holly from Bentonia, MS
You cant beat the quality of education you will receive here for the price you are going to pay. It's just that simple. If you don't believe me then look it up. Some bigger schools compared to us will have you pay more than twice what we offer.
