Tuition and Financial Aid

Tennessee residents qualify for in-state tuition. Out-of-state students who take ONLY online courses will be charged the eRate. Out-of-state students who take a mix of online and hybrid/on ground courses will be charged the out-of-state rate. Non-Tennessee residents who take a combination of online and on-campus courses can qualify for reduced online tuition under the Regional Scholars Program if they:

  • Live within approximately 250 miles of the MTSU campus or anywhere within the eight states bordering Tennessee (Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, and Virginia)
  • Are U.S. citizens or permanent residents
  • Maintain good academic standing

Estimated tuition and fees

The tuition rates are estimates of the per-hour cost of students who take 10 credit-hours or less per semester. Students who elect to take more than 10 credit-hours (11+) per semester for the Fall and Spring semesters will pay a reduced per-hour cost (Summer is full charge).

Interviewers were impressed with my ‘polished and professional’ presentation—even more than my project management skills. Jones College’s M.B.A. program was integral to my soft skill development and one of the best investments I ever made.
