In an uncertain world, it’s good to know that some things never change - like Mississippi State’s commitment to keeping our students firmly on their academic paths.

With travel restrictions in place due to the COVID-19 health crisis, we’re moving our summer courses all online and offering them at reduced prices to ensure access to every new and current student. Students will be able to take as much as an entire semester over three summer sessions running from May 6 to Aug. 4. There will also be a 10-week term from June 1-Aug. 4. 

We realize many students and families are facing financial hardships as a result of the pandemic, and we want to help. In addition to lowering tuition, we are expanding course offerings to provide even greater value for students who are interested in advancing their education at MSU this summer. 

Accelerate your degree, complete a minor, or explore a new area of interest while benefitting from reduced tuition and an expanded curriculum led by some of the nation’s most outstanding faculty. 

It’s part of Mississippi State’s unchanging commitment. Not only will we keep you on your path, we’ll help you get ahead. 

Customize a schedule that works for you today.
