Strong Freshman applicants will present a 2.5 minimum GPA in core academic subjects. Freshman applicants must complete a required core curriculum of courses during their secondary school education to be admitted to the university. The basic core requirements are:

4 units of English
3 units of mathematics
3 units of sciences
3 units of social studies
2 units of advanced electives
1/2 unit of computer applications

It is understood that most foreign education systems do not follow the same core curriculum as taught in U.S. high schools. Therefore, each applicant will be evaluated on criteria particular to the educational system of the country in which they completed their studies.

Admission with Deficiencies

Applicants who fail to meet full admission standards as listed above may, as a result of a review, be admitted for the summer or fall semester. The review shall involve a consideration of high school performance, ACT/SAT scores, placement testing, and special interests and skills, as well as other non-cognitive factors.

As a result of the review, students who indicate inadequate readiness in English, reading or mathematics may be required to participate in counseling and testing, which will be held on campus prior to the beginning of the summer session. Applicants who successfully complete the counseling and testing program may be admitted to the university, with the requirement that they participate in the Year-Long Academic Support Program.

Students who are not successful in completing the counseling and testing program may be admitted with the requirements that they enroll in the Summer Developmental Program.

(Video) First Year Admissions Requirements

The Summer Developmental Program is an intensive nine-week program developed to prepare students for success during their first year of college studies. The program concentrates on those high school subject areas (writing, reading, mathematics) that are crucial to success in first-year college curricula. To be eligible to enroll in the program, students must first go through an on-campus interview, which includes taking a diagnostic test called the Accuplacer.

Students who successfully complete the Summer Developmental Program will be allowed to continue in the fall term with mandatory participation in the Year-Long Academic Support Program during their freshman year. Students who do not successfully complete the Summer Developmental Program will be counseled to explore other post-secondary opportunities, including those offered by community colleges.

The cost for the program is full-semester tuition plus the required study materials. A student may apply for financial aid to assist in paying for the program by filling out a FASFA application; a grant is also available through the State of Mississippi.

The Year-Long Academic Support Program is designed to help students navigate through their first year of college studies with a positive experience and complete it with great success.

The program offers individualized one-on-one advisement and counseling sessions with a specified staff member in the Division of Undergraduate Studies. The student will be required to meet with the staff member throughout their first year of college prior enrolling for each upcoming semester.

Transfer Admissions Requirements

A transfer applicant can be admitted to Southern Miss through several different routes. Please note that admission to some academic programs may require students to meet additional requirements.

Students must have either an associate degree intended for transfer from a regionally accredited institution or have completed the 30 semester hours of designated coursework outlined below with a minimum 2.0 cumulative grade point average for admission.

College-Level Examination Program (CLEP)

The University of Southern Mississippi will allow credit by examination to those students who have participated in the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) and have achieved a level acceptable to the university. A student of any age who has not earned college-level credit in the subject area in which he or she seeks credit can take a CLEP subject-area examination for advanced placement and college credit. CLEP credit cannot be used to remove an F grade. Credit will be awarded for a scaled score of 50 or above. The essay is required for all English examinations. CLEP examinations in English can, with required scores, be substituted for ENG 101. The appropriate department at Southern Miss will have final determination in the amount of credit to be awarded, based on the essay. Under this program, students are restricted to a maximum of 30 semester hours, with not more than eight hours or two courses in one subject-matter area.* It is understood that the 30-hour total includes all credit earned by examination. The Office of Admissions will be charged with the responsibility of determining a student's eligibility to earn credit through these examinations. Credit appearing on another institution's transcript will be accepted as transfer credit only if it meets the above cited standards.

For CLEP scores earned prior to June 2001, the following policies apply for the General Examination of the College Level Examination Program (CLEP):

· Credit for the General Examination will be restricted to students who have been out of high school for at least three years.

· A student who has earned more than 30 semester hours of college credit may not earn additional credit through the use of the General Examination.

· Credit will be awarded for each area in which the student receives a scale score of 500 or above.

· All English General Examinations taken between January 1978 and April 1986 require a score of 610 for credit. It will be the responsibility of the Office of Admissions to determine a person's eligibility to receive credit.

*Credit for all foreign languages will vary within a range score of 40-80 and may allow up to 12 semester hours credit.
