Presidential and National Merit Scholarship Recipients

Presidential and National Merit scholarship recipients are also eligible for a housing scholarship. The housing portion of this scholarship covers the cost of an on-campus, double-occupancy1 residence hall space for four years (eight semesters), as long as the student maintains continuous residency in on-campus housing.

Beginning Fall 2019, students who have lived in on-campus housing2 for two full academic years (four semesters, excluding summers), may have the option to either continue living in on-campus housing or take a portion of their scholarship to College View, our university housing apartment community, for their third and fourth year. Students may select any College View apartment option, but any cost beyond $5,000/academic year will be an additional personal expense to that student.

Students interested in taking their scholarship to CollegeView must email jthornton@saffairs.msstate.edu with the students MSU ID information.

For more information, please contact the Department of Housing and Residence Life at 662-325-3555.

1Scholarships do not cover single or quad spaces. If the student chooses either of these room types, any cost beyond the double occupancy rate would be the students responsibility.  
2On-campus housing does not include fraternity, sorority, or any other special housing accommodations. On-campus housing includes the following residence halls; Cresswell, Critz, Deavenport, Dogwood, Griffis, Hathorn, Herbert, Hull, Hurst, Magnolia, McKee, Moseley, Nunnelee, Oak, Ruby, and Sessums Halls.
