Capitalize on Value. With one of the most robust scholarship offerings of peer institutions, most SMSU students also receive financial assistance. The average financial aid package is over $10,700. With banded tuition, credits between 12-18 cost the same, so your tuition does not change. 

Additional scholarship opportunities help lower the price even further. It is true that college is an investment. but it does not have to be an expensive one at SMSU.

Scholarship Priority Deadlines

Scholarships for freshmen students will be awarded the 1st week of each month starting in October 2019. Students must be admitted to SMSU before the last date of the previous month and qualify to receive a scholarship offer.
