Paying Deposit

For students beginning in Fall, the payment is due by August 1. For students starting in Spring, payment is due by January 1.

All new international students will be required to pay a $6,000 deposit prior to enrolling for their first semester at Mississippi State.

This deposit can be paid through the International Payment portal in your MyState Account (powered by FlyWire). The only exceptions to this requirement are students who have a graduate assistant position (GA/RA/TA) or students who are sponsored by their home government or outside agency.
