To help our international students with the cost of studying and living abroad, Mississippi College and the Office of Global Education are happy to provide financial assistance to all incoming full-time international students! This is for international students who are not already receiving full or substantial scholarships from other sources. 

This financial assistance is available in Fall and Spring Semesters only. Financial assistance is not available during Summer Semester. 

Undergraduate Students

All qualifying international undergraduate students are provided $2,000 in financial aid each semester for their first two semesters of academic study as long as the students maintain a 2.5 GPA or above. To reward academic excellence, the Office of Global Education will add $1,000 to the financial aid of students who obtain a 4.0 GPA (or straight A’s) in their first semester. Please note, however, that financial aid for undergraduate students is only provided for the first two academic semestersOnce students have completed their first two semesters of academic study, they MUST APPLY for the MERIT-BASED scholarship offered through the Office of Global Education. Please see more information about the merit-based scholarship.

Graduate Students

All qualifying international graduate students are provided $1,500 in financial aid each semester as long as they maintain a 3.0 GPA or above.  As with undergraduate students, graduate students who obtain a 4.0 GPA (or straight A’s) in one semester will have their financial aid increase an additional $500 for the following semester.  This consideration is made each semester and only applies to semesters following a semester where the graduate student made all A’s.
