Award-winning academic programs, deeply invested professors, and unique opportunities for hands-on experience in your chosen field long before you graduate. Plus, MSU consistently ranks as one of the nation’s greatest values.
Mississippi State is one of the nation’s leading research universities, ranked in the top 100 by the National Science Foundation—consistently in the top 10 for Agricultural Science, the top 50 for Engineering, and the top 25 for Social Sciences. Even undergraduate students have the opportunity to get involved in research at MSU.
Many of our programs incorporate hands-on experience inside and outside the classroom through internships and cooperative education. Our highly ranked Architecture school utilizes a unique studio-based curriculum consisting of process, critique, production, and representation.
MSU is affordable for both residents and non-residents. Out-of-state students can qualify for Non-resident Tuition Academic Excellence Scholarships; these awards are based on competitive high school GPAs and ACT/SAT scores. Prospective students can also qualify for other merit-based academic, leadership, and service scholarships. Mississippi State’s priority date for Competitive, Private, and Departmental Scholarships is December 1.
When starting your college search, nothing can tell you more about a university than visiting campus. At Mississippi State, we strive to make families feel at home from the moment they step on campus.
