Can transfer students with some college (no degree) be considered eligible to live off-campus their first year?
Mississippi State University
Hi Naya! We classify our first-time freshmen by their high school graduation date. Example: If you graduate in May (or spring) 2022 and are attending MSU in the fall of 2022, you are considered a first-time freshmen, even if you have taken college classes. If you graduate from high school in May (or spring) 2022, attend community college in the fall of 2022, then want to attend MSU in the spring of 2023, you are considered a transfer student at that point. If you have additional questions let me know!

If I have a parent who is retired from the Military, am I able to use their GI Bill towards tuition expenses?
Mississippi State University
Hi Naya! That is a great question! Based on what benefits they have left, yes! We also have the Veterans Waiver for our out-of-state students which covers 100% of the out-of-state portion of a students tuition if there parent/guardian is active or former military-- this can be used with the GI Bill benefits, so that's a huge plus about MSU! We have an Admissions Counselor who works with military dependents and students who are in the military! Her name is Sally Wilson, she would love to connect with you! Her email is sgw153@msstate.edu

How does MSU aim to support incoming students as they transition into college life?

Great question Molly! We are so very fortunate that we have a new Center for Student Success that has a dozen plus staff members and that is their entire job! As Student Success Coordinators, they assist students with tackling any obstacle they might have! We have other resources as well including the Writing Center, the Math Lab, the Center for Student Activities, the Holmes Cultural Diversity Center and so many other centers who assist students!
