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

3.69 Average Rating
Millsaps is known for offering a top notch liberal arts education for much less than our competitors. According to Forbes magazine which ranks schools by affordability and productivity, Millsaps College is the best school in Mississippi and we rank in the top 20% of all schools in the nation. For the price of tuition Millsaps offers an education that is challenging but not overwhelmingly hard, a delicious meal 21 times a week, a welcoming and caring faculty/staff/student body, and a great time!!! I love Millsaps and you will too!
Alexander from Gulfport, MS
The whole purpose of college is to get a great education. Millsaps is worth every penny! The teachers are eagered to help and know their material. You will find yourself having discussions on things you never thought you would have learned. In addition, Millsaps makes you their personal obligation. If you start to slack, they will make sure they revive you before it's too late. They really do care about creating a successful generation of students.
Tiara from Jackson, MS
Millsaps has the best liberal art education in the state! It's the only school in MS where you can major or minor in Peace Studies! Over 75% of Millsaps students study abroad, and scholarships are available to cover tuition and traveling fees. I love Millsaps for its diversity in its curriculum and in its students.
Courtney from Greenwood, MS
The long-term value of the Millsaps EMBA cannot be quantified by the tuition. The tuition is well in line with other programs of such rank and stature, nationally and internationally.
Lauren from Utica, MS
Yes, Millsaps is very expensive. Although, the experience I have gained from just my first year has made these expenses worth every penny.
Allyson from Ruston, LA
Millsaps is expensive but it is worth it. You will not receive an education like this at a big state school and it's probably one of the best liberal arts schools in the south. Millsaps degrees can open many dorms.

True, Millsaps, is on the pricey side. I have become especially aware of this fact because I pay my own way through school. Still, I think you are getting the bang for your bucks, for the most part. There are no surprise extra costs like some that I've noticed at other schools. For instance, parking decals and printing do not cost extra. The only thing that bothers me is the meal plan. There is only one option, and it's rather expensive compared to other schools; however, this is possible to change!
