Costs and Financing

Cost (fees subject to change)

The price for undergraduates is $3,899 and $4,099 for graduates.

Cost includes round-trip airfare from New Orleans; tuition; fees; lodging; international student identity card, ground transportation; field trips and some social activities. Students are responsible for food and personal expenses.


Students who are accepted for participation in the Caribbean Studies Program may apply for financial aid if they meet federal requirements for a Guaranteed Student Loan. Students requiring financial aid should contact Frances Sudduth at the Southern Miss International Programs Office before requesting a study-abroad financial aid application from their university's Financial Aid Office.

Pell Grants, faculty/staff dependent scholarships, faculty/staff tuition waivers, and graduate assistantships are also accepted. Students are advised to begin the financial aid process well in advance of those deadlines. Students should apply for financial aid through the school in which they are currently enrolled and seeking a degree.

Financial aid agreements between Southern Miss and other universities are available, if requested. If more information is needed, contact the Southern Miss International Programs Office.
