Delta State tuition to remain same for 2024-25 as university proposes budget, department cuts

Amid Delta State’s plan rolled out earlier this week to balance the budget, the public university has made clear that increasing tuition is not part of that plan.

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

While many colleges and universities across the U.S. have already or are considering a tuition increase, Delta State is choosing to go the other direction – at least for the 2024-25 academic year.

According to the Institutions of Higher Learning, Delta State is the only public college or university in Mississippi that will not be increasing tuition for the upcoming school year. Ennis cited appropriations from the state legislature and a plan he proposed on Monday to cut the budget and a handful of departments as means to ensure tuition remains unchanged.

“I want to thank state legislators for their support of higher education by providing an increase in state appropriations to the universities,” Ennis continued. “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, with an enrollment of 2,716, is one of few four-year schools serving the Mississippi Delta, which is statistically one of the poorest regions in the nation.
