General tuition is the basic fee that all students are assessed for enrollment in the University and is approved by the Board of Trustees of The Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning. This fee, together with the allocation from the legislative appropriation is used for general support of the University.

The University of Southern Mississippi is supported chiefly by legislative appropriations. Increases in student fees are put into effect only when public support funds are inadequate and no other recourse is available.  Increases are made only for support of the institution or improvement of the activity program of the students; therefore, the university must reserve the right to increase or modify fees without prior notice but with approval of the Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning.

  • Out of State fees are waived for mini-session classes
  • Mini-session classes are billed in addition to regular classes
  • Mini Session hours do not count in the flat rate hours.
