Calendar and Costs

CALENDAR

We welcome students for summer terms, one semester, or the academic year.

The spring 2019 semester arrival day is January 14, 2019. If you arrive on January 14th between 8:00am and 10:00pm at the Memphis, Tennessee airport, we will pick you up and transport you to Oxford, Mississippi free of charge. A free shuttle from Memphis International Airport is provided on the Official Arrival Day each semester from 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM. If you plan on arriving before January 14th you will need to secure a hotel room at the airport until January 14th or arrange your own transportation to Oxford and stay in a hotel until on-campus housing opens on January 14th.
