All students participating in Summer College are automatically awarded a UM Outreach Tuition Scholarship that fully covers tuition and non-resident fees (and international fees).

In addition to the UM Outreach Tuition Scholarship, we offer other types of aid.

Need-Based Financial Aid
Need-based financial aid is based on the parent/guardian income tax return as well as the student's achievements. Students interested in need-based aid should complete the Pre-College Financial Aid Application and return required documents (latest tax return and personal statement) after applying for admission.

ACT/SAT Scholarship
ACT/SAT scholarships are awarded based on standardized test scores (see chart below). Students must take the ACT or SAT and have their scores reported on their high school transcripts (or send a copy of their official score report to our office) in order to receive an ACT/SAT scholarship. Students eligible for an ACT/SAT scholarship are not required to complete the financial aid application unless seeking additional need-based aid. This scholarship is only available to students in the residential program.

ACT Scores SAT Scores* Scholarship Award
33-36 1490-1600 $2,000 off program costs
30-32 1390-1480 $1,500 off program costs
27-29 1280-1380 $1,000 off program costs

*Only Math and Verbal sections will be considered for scholarships on the SAT.

First-Generation Scholarship
Limited funding is available for first-generation students from the Mississippi Delta. This fund is reserved to help students who are the first in their family to attend a college or university. Students interested in first-generation scholars’ aid should complete the Pre-College Financial Aid Application after applying for admission. This funding is highly competitive.

Academic Competition Scholarships
The University of Mississippi offers a variety of academic competitions run by the Office of Pre-College Programs during the Fall and Spring semesters. First, Second, and Third place winners in qualifying competitions receive scholarships to Summer College and other summer programs offered by the Office of Pre-College Programs. These scholarships cannot be combined with other need-based aid or ACT/SAT awards. This scholarship is only available to students in the residential program.

To redeem a competition scholarship, students should email or mail the Competition Scholarship Application form received at a competition to the Office of Pre-College Programs.
