Mississippi State University’s Scholarship Program offers assistance to outstanding students who demonstrate the potential for superior academic performance at the college level.

Students must be enrolled full-time and must complete a minimum of 12 credit hours each semester to receive scholarships. Academic scholarships will be deferred during the work phase for co-op students. Renewal of scholarships and non-resident scholarships/waivers is based on full-time enrollment and maintaining a 3.00 overall GPA at the end of each spring semester.

All students have the right to appeal their Scholarship status. Exceptions may be made in cases of mitigating circumstances such as: Death in the immediate family, personal injury, illness, etc, as determined by the Office of Admissions and Scholarships and the University Scholarship Appeals Committee.

The Appeals Committee will meet once a year in July. Students may obtain the appeals form from the Office of Admissions and Scholarships by the end of June. The University Scholarship Appeals Committee has authority over all appeals and its decisions are final.

Academic and non-resident tuition scholarships are only offered during the fall and spring semesters. Requests to substitute a summer semester for a fall or spring semester must be made through the scholarship office.
