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

3.65 Average Rating
Oh yes! Ole Miss is one of the most ecnomical state universities in the US. Definitely consider The University of Mississippi for that. All of my teachers have gone out of their way to be certain that I was gaining, and was equipped with all of the tools and information I needed to make my learning experience the best possible.
Elizabeth from Oxford, MS
At Ole Miss, you get a top-notch education at an extremely low price. Additionally, they're very generous with scholarships as long as you take the time to apply. Even as an out of state student, I'm paying way less to attend school here than I would at many of my in-state universities.
Megan from Houston, TX
The University of Mississippi is a university surrounded by success. Whether through the alumni or current students, Ole Miss is represented by outstanding people. It is because Ole Miss has so much to offer academically and through activities that it is worth the cost. Although it is not as expensive as most, Ole Miss definitely is worth every penny.
Kristen from Ridgeland, MS
I have received enough scholarships to cover everything.
Alison from Utica, MS
Living in Oxford is so much cheaper than living in New Jersey. You can do a lot of things for very little money.
Eric from South Plainfield, NJ
Ole Miss is a little expensive, but it gives you the best of both worlds as they say. It's a big school and a small school put into one.
Katherine from Oxford, MS
There so much to do and everyone is so welcoming. I can't imagine going anywhere else to school.
Hannah from Madison, MS
For the education you're receiving, the price is not bad at all. The University of Mississippi is very generous with scholarships, which makes it affordable for out of state students as well.
Current Out of State Freshman
Whatever it is, if you're in-state, or out of state like myself, Ole Miss is worth it. It has everything you could want.
