In an effort to help our international students with the expensive cost of studying abroad, Mississippi College and the Office of Global Education are happy to provide financial aid to many full-time international students! This is for international students who are not already receiving full or substantial scholarships from other sources.
All qualifying international undergraduate students are provided $800 in financial aid each semester for their first two semesters of academic study as long as the students maintain a 2.0 GPA or above. To reward academic excellence, the Office of Global Education will double the financial aid of students who obtain a 4.0 GPA (or straight A’s) in their first semester. Please note, however, that financial aid for undergraduate students is only provided for the first two academic semesters. Once students have completed their first two semesters of academic study, they must apply for the merit-based scholarship offered through the Office of Global Education. Please see more information about the merit based scholarship here.
All qualifying international graduate students are provided $650 in financial aid each semester as long as they maintain a 3.0 GPA or above. As with undergraduate students, graduate students who obtain a 4.0 GPA (or straight A’s) in one semester will have their financial aid doubled for the following semester. This consideration is made each semester and only applies to semesters following a semester where the graduate student made all A’s. Like international undergraduate students, international graduate students must apply for the merit-based scholarship offered through the Office of Global Education after their first academic year.
