Alcorn State University is ranked one of the two most affordable universities in Mississippi

Alcorn State University is one of the two most affordable universities in Mississippi, according to a state-by-state ranking released by University Headquarters (HQ).

The ranking used tuition cost, retention rates, graduation numbers, and other factors to determine the two most affordable four-year colleges and universities by state. Each of the baccalaureate-degree granting schools satisfies the requirements of not only affordable costs but also overall value.

In addition to its generous student scholarship opportunities, Alcorn continues to receive national recognition for academic excellence and affordability. A top choice for students, Alcorn was recently ranked as a top-20 HBCU in the nation by U.S. News and Report’s 2021 Best Colleges rankings. Also, in national surveys, its nursing program is ranked number 1 for HBCUs and ranked number 3 for HBCUs’ most affordable online bachelor’s degree.

Alcorn is included in this top-affordability ranking with well-known four-year colleges and universities such as Arizona State University, Iowa State University, University of Maryland, University of Houston, and the University of Wisconsin.

According to their site, University HQ is an independent educational organization that compiles comprehensive information for students who wish to pursue higher education. It is an online source for information on colleges, entrance requirements, and career paths to help students achieve the very best education.
