At The W, we believe that the cost of a college education should not be a deterrent to your pursuit of earning a college degree. The university has the lowest tuition in Mississippi among public universities, and has kept tuition steady for two years. Beginning with the 2014-15 Academic Year, we are offering that same low tuition to residents in the surrounding states.
