This estimate is for tuition and fees only for the Online Campus Only. This estimate does not take into include housing, food, books, supplies, or costs of living.

Transcripts sent from other colleges and universities will be evaluated, and accepted credits will be added to the student's MSU record. The Tuition Estimator is not a guarantee or predictor of the number of credit hours that will be accepted.

Scholarships and other financial aid options (MTAG, MESG, PTK, Community College Transfer, Military) will reduce this total tuition and fees cost for the hours you will need to earn a BAS degree.
