Summer School is composed of five separate terms: One eight-week term (Full Summer Term), two four-week terms (First Summer Term and Second Summer Term) and two even shorter intersession terms (May Intersession and August Intersession). The Summer School program is designed to offer Ole Miss students the opportunity to earn academic credits toward the completion of their degrees during the summer months.
May Intersession – May 13-25, 2012 (10 class days, plus exam on Saturday, May 25, 2013)
Full Summer Term – May 29-July 26, 2013
First Summer Term – May 29-June 26, 2013 (19 class days plus exams)
Second Summer Term – June 27-July 26, 2013 (19 class days plus exams)
August Intersession – July 29-August 10, 2013 (10 class days plus exam on Saturday, August 10, 2013)

On this web site you will find the academic calendar for Summer School 2013, as well as a list of all of the courses that are currently scheduled to be offered in each of the different summer terms. Courses are listed by school and department. Because details about a particular course can and do change between the start of the Priority Registration period and the beginning of the summer, you can find the most current information on courses by consulting the Course Schedule menu on the myOleMiss web site (click here).
Tuition in the Summer School is charged on the number of credit hours a student takes. Mississippi resident tuition is the same as that of any other comparable course taken during the fall 2012 or spring 2013 semesters. Non-resident tuition, however, is significantly lower than in the fall and spring semesters, which makes Summer School a good buy for out–of–state students.
