The University of Mississippi is committed to making summer collegiate experiences affordable for students and their families. All admitted Summer College students receive full tuition scholarships from the university to encourage their participation in summer programs we know will have a positive impact on their later success.
Program costs below are estimates and may not reflect actual costs. The following are based on 2020 costs.
|Primary Expenses||Typical Cost||What You Would Pay|
|UM Undergraduate Application Fee (one-time fee)||$40 (MS Resident)
$60 (Non-MS Resident)

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. Virtual students are ineligible for all other types of aid with the exception of need-based aid and first-generation college student 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 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.
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.
