Delta State University is one of the most affordable colleges in the entire country. With the PTK scholarship, your full tuition is paid. That along with FASFA (Pell Grant) you really only need one loan. Our student body is small less than 3000 but very diverse as there is an exceptional number of foreign exchange students. It's a fun and fascinating experience to meet people from other countries and cultures! Small campus is easy to navigate and they recently repaved all the roads.

Great! The classes are challenging, but very educational. There have been and continue to be a lot of work being done to the campus. There is something for everyone here; sports, fraternities, sororities, academic clubs, band, cheer, dancing... something for EVERYONE! The campus is well maintained and is always making improvements. I feel like I will definitely leave here knowing what I need to know (and more) when I go to my graduate program.
Delta State University is a public institution providing a comprehensive undergraduate and graduate curriculum to approximately 3,500 students representing all of the states and 50 different countries. Dozens of degree programs on the undergraduate level provide educational opportunities in the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business, and Education and in the Robert E. Smith School of Nursing.
