Summer Term at Ole Miss

The summer semester is a wonderful time to study in the southern United States. We have three options for summer enrollment:
  • Summer 1,
  • Summer 2,
  • and Full Summer.
The dates are listed below. If a student enrolls in Summer 1 or Summer 2, they must enroll in at least 6 credit hours if it is their first time studying at Ole Miss. If a student enrolls for the Full Summer Term, they must enroll in at least 12 credit hours if it is their first time studying at Ole Miss. Please feel free to email with any and all questions regarding a summer at Ole Miss. 

We can design programs and events especially for you. We will have a welcome dinner, a weekend excursion to a nearby city (Nashville, New Orleans, Saint Louis), excursions to Rowan Oak, the University Museum, and more! If you want to see or do something in Oxford, Mississippi during the summer term, we will try our best to make it happen! Join us for a summer to remember.

Rowan Oak
Oxford Campus
The University of Mississippi Oxford campus is home to most of the University’s undergraduate programs as well as many graduate faculties. Academic buildings and campus housing nestle around a large green area known as the Grove. Surrounding campus are a number of sports facilities, creating a border between the campus and the community. We are a safe, friendly community with a big passion for Ole Miss. 

The University of Mississippi is located in the heart of the American South, in the north-central region of Mississippi, in a town called Oxford.

Oxford is a small town with a big vision.  Full of artists and musicians, the town is well known throughout the United States for its delicious Southern cuisine and great literary traditions, including local writers William Faulkner and John Grisham.

Course Offerings

Courses labeled with a number ranging from 100 to 400 and some 500 level (nothing at 600 or higher) are for undergraduate credit.
Examples: Business 101, 205, 303, 450, 500. 

Courses must be at the 500 level or higher. These courses must be pre-approved by the academic department. Please notify the Study Abroad Office as early as possible if you intend to come as a graduate student.
During the summer, courses meet five days per week, and students earn 3 hours of credit for each successfully completed course.
The best way to search for courses is to search at the following website:
  • In the "Academics box, click "Course Schedule" 
  • Find the term of your intended study - course schedules come out in late March for the following summer terms. Prospective students and applicants may have to look at prior summer course offerings to get an idea of what courses are offered.
  • Search for courses by typing in key words (example: Jour or Journalism) or search using the departmental drop-down list. 
We also offer Intensive English Program courses. Students are not charged extra fees to take the Intensive English Program (IEP) courses.
