Program Description:

We are excited that you are considering studying at the University of Mississippi. Programs are available throughout the year for the academic year, fall or spring semester, and summer terms. Please speak with the exchange coordinator at your home university before beginning the application process.

Thank you for your patience as we update our website in preparation for the fall 2018 application cycle. Please send student nominations by email to before the students apply or shortly after. There is no nomination deadline. The early deadline for students to apply is March 15, 2018. We encourage students to apply before March 15 to ensure a smooth visa process. I will keep extending the deadline until all applicants have applied. Please try to apply before May 1, 2018. 


Throughout the application process you will be asked to provide several documents. Below is a comprehensive list of all documents that will need to be submitted during the application process. An admissions decision and visa support documents cannot be made until the application is complete.

Application Material Checklist:

If you are a graduate student who will be taking even one graduate level course, fill out the graduate student application.

This is very important and ensures that your application is processed by the right department.
