Are there Out-of-State Fees?

The W does have out-of-state tuition for students who are not residents of the State of Mississippi; however, the Bachelor of Science in Culinary Arts and the Bachelor of Technology in Professional Studies qualify for the Academic Common Market (ACM) in many states. This means you may be able to qualify for in-state tuition, even if you live in another state! Find out more about the Academic Common Market and other out-of-state fee waivers.
