Types of Aid

Anything from scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study programs, to help you afford education-related expenses.

There are many ways to pay for college

We have multiple resources for determining your cost of attendance, whether you're an undergraduate or graduate student, full or part-time, or in a specific program. As you review your options, it’s important to consider both direct costs billed by Ole Miss and indirect costs that are realistic allowances for other anticipated expenses. Your financial plan should take into account not only tuition and fees, but also include housing, meal plans, books and supplies, personal, and travel expenses.

Types of Aid

In putting together financial aid packages for all students, Ole Miss provides the following types of awards:

Scholarships are awarded based on merit, financial need, and talent in areas such as academics, athletics, and music. https://finaid.olemiss.edu/scholarships-home/

Grants usually require a demonstration of financial need and are often provided by government sources. https://finaid.olemiss.edu/grants/

Funds for students and parents that will eventually have to be repaid with interest.
A part-time job opportunity (typically on-campus) for students who demonstrate financial need.

The Special Programs & Scholarship Application is due January 10, 2024.
