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.

The price is great for the level of education.
Annette from Columbus, MS
It cant be very rewarding.
Tracy from Brookhaven, MS
The W has a private school education at a public school cost. It is much cheaper than many of the schools I looked at when applying for college, but you learn so much here, and you get tons of great opportunities when you get involved. I went to Scotland TWICE, met a famous author (Ian Rankin), met tons of authors actually (Welty Symposium), saw a ton of plays, presented original research, was asked to present said research at a conference, and went to Tampa, Florida for an honors conference!!
Stefani from Brandon, MS
The cheapest option 4 year college wise, you will get the most for your money. It is a private college at the public college cost.
Demyia from Port Gibson, MS
Because the tuition is so inexpensive, you don't have to do anything drastic like student loans! But if you have to, borrow only what you need because you WILL have to pay them back!
