IHL: Two Mississippi Universities Can Offer Tuition Breaks

Posted by Kelsey Evans | August 16, 2012 / 03:09pm | Local News, Business

JACKSON, Miss. (AP)- Two more Mississippi public universities will offer tuition breaks to some out-of-state students.

Alcorn State University and the Mississippi University for Women won approval from the College Board on Thursday to waive higher charges for non-Mississippi residents. They join Jackson State University, which got permission for a waiver in June.

The Legislature passed a law this year allowing universities to reduce tuition to in-state levels for some non-Mississippians. The schools lobbied for the measure, saying public colleges elsewhere were waiving charges for Mississippi students.

Undergraduates who are Mississippi residents will pay $5,316 to attend MUW this year. Non-residents will pay $14,484.

Mississippi resident undergraduates will pay $5,712 to attend Alcorn full time this year. Non-residents will pay $14,052.

Many students from both groups will pay less because of financial aid.
