Mississippi

In researching the state of Mississippi no statute was found concerning senior citizens tuition waivers for college.  The public universities, colleges, and community colleges are listed here with links to waivers that have been found.  Just because an institution is listed here does not imply that waivers are offered.  They have been listed in order for me to update as waivers may become available or are found.
