Delta State University announces no increase in tuition for 2024-2025 academic year

CLEVELAND, Miss. — Citing its commitment to providing access to higher education, as well as serving the population of the Mississippi Delta, one of the poorest regions in the nation, Delta State University has announced that it will not increase tuition for the upcoming 2024-2025 academic year.

Delta State President Dr. Daniel J. Ennis said, “We are dedicated to ensuring that a Delta State education is within reach for everyone. We never want finances to be a hurdle for students who want to attend DSU.”

While many colleges and universities across the nation are planning to raise tuition by the standard 2-10 percent, Delta State University is focused on removing barriers for future students. “At Delta State, we are dedicated to ensuring an affordable and accessible education,” said Ennis. “Delta State aims to ensure that a quality education is available to all.”

Delta State is the only university within the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning system that will not increase tuition for the 2024-2025 academic year.

“I want to thank State Legislators for their support of higher education by providing an increase in state appropriations to the universities. This extra funding, combined with the savings generated from the university’s restructuring plan, will allow Delta State to hold the line on its tuition rates for the upcoming academic year.”

Delta State University is committed to extending assistance to students in any way possible. Prospective students still have time to apply for the fall semester, and academic scholarships are still available. For more information, visit
