College Costs

Tuition at Mississippi's colleges and universities has increased at a slower pace than the U.S. as a whole in recent years: between the fall of 2006 and 2011, nationwide in-state tuition increased by 42% at public four-year schools, compared to just a 27.4% increase in Mississippi. Similarly, while in-state tuition at private four-year schools increased by 27.8% across the U.S., it increased by only 19.3% in Mississippi. On the other hand, in the fall of 2013, Mississippi public universities significantly increased tuition: all eight state schools hiked up prices by over 6% from the previous year. Reasons given by schools include: difficulty paying faculty salaries, cuts made during the recession and increases in operational costs.

College Enrollment

Enrollment at Mississippi universities stayed almost exactly on par with the U.S. during the decade from 2000 to 2010, with a 27-28% increase over that time period. However, the last couple years have seen dipping enrollment at Mississippi's public universities, in particular: between 2012 and 2013, enrollment at those eight schools together dropped 0.6%, though the University of Mississippi actually saw a 7.4% increase in enrollment. Officials cited several reasons for the overall enrollment decrease, including tighter federal restrictions on financial aid and reductions in federal funding for graduate students.
