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

4.10 Average Rating
Mississippi College makes sure that you can get everything out of your dollar that you are spending to go to this school. They have a health clinic that is free for students with caring physicians, a healthplex which has all kinds of workout equipment for you to use to beat stress, along with basketball courts, aerial track, ping pong tables, pool, sauna, and whirlpool.
Other than the campus cafeteria, we also have a coffee and sandwich shop and a grill for when you need a quick pick me up between classes.

The school is an expensive private school ,but you get your money's worth.
Bryce from Gulfport, MS
It was worth the amount i paid to attend.
Eboni from Vicksburg, MS
From its spiritually engaging environment to its focused academics, MC offers a holistic, Christ-centered education that equips its students to make a difference in their workplaces and communities. While a private school, MC is still reasonably priced at around $20,000/yr. Scholarships are available, and with a decent ACT score it is very feasible to reach the institution cap of $9,000/yr.
