Mississippi Schools

There are 62 colleges and universities in Mississippi for you to consider. The largest school, by student population, in Mississippi is Mississippi State University, which is located in Mississippi State, and had 18,601 students in 2010. Located in the city of University, University of Mississippi Main Campus is the second largest school in Mississippi. It had 15,932 students in 2010.

Popular Courses of Study in Mississippi

Along with choosing a college from among Mississippi's 62 schools, you will also have to choose a course of study from one of the 2,336 certificate and degree programs offered at these schools. If you are undecided, you may want to consider pursuing an education in business, liberal arts or education, which are the most popular subjects in Mississippi for undergraduates. Of the 84,000 students that graduated from Mississippi state schools in 2010, 15% studied business, 15% studied liberal arts and 14% studied education. The remainder of Mississippi students, approximately 12,371 students, graduated with credentials in subjects such as psychology, health information management or fashion.

Student Demographics in Mississippi

If you decide to study at a Mississippi school, you will be joining the 175,004 other students currently studying in Mississippi colleges. Approximately 89% of the state’s college students are enrolled in undergraduate programs. And approximately 82% of students in undergraduate programs are full-time students, while the remaining 18% of undergraduates attend school on a part time basis.

Mississippi has a relatively diverse student population. In 2009, 46% of undergraduate students identified themselves as belonging to a racial or ethnic minority background. The male to female ratio amongst undergraduates at Mississippi colleges and universities is 7 to 10. And approximately 53% of undergraduate students are under 24 years of age.

Faculty Demographics in Mississippi

Just as the student population at Mississippi schools is relatively diverse, the faculty at Mississippi schools is also relatively diverse.

Around 41% of the Mississippi's faculty population consisted of male faculty.

Cost of Education in Mississippi

The average cost of an undergraduate education, factoring in tuition, living expenses and financial aid, in Mississippi was $6,893 per year for the 2009 school year, which is less than the national average. But this number can be misleading. As an example, an undergraduate education at the state’s most expensive school, Millsaps College, will cost you about $26,240 per year, while studying at Holmes Community College, Mississippi's least expensive school, will result in a bill of around $1,588 per year.

Student Completion, Graduation and Retention Rates

Each year, an average of 84,000 students graduate from degree and certificate programs in Mississippi. In Mississippi, in 2009, 1 out of 3 students who started an undergraduate program four to six years earlier graduated. And 7 out of 10 students who started their first year of an undergraduate degree actually returned to do their second year. This means that if you enroll in a Mississippi school for your undergraduate degree, there is a 69% chance that you will return to school the following year and 38% chance that you will graduate after 4-6 years.
