TRANSFER OF FUNDS

Before students leave their native countries, it is very important to inquire about the regulations regarding the transfer of funds. In addition to the costs of travel, students should have at least $500 (USD) upon arrival in Mississippi to meet initial expenses. Foreign bank drafts for spending money made out to the university may take up to one month to process, so it is highly recommended that internationally accepted traveler's checks be used by the student in place of checks written on foreign banks.
