Full-time Course Load and Maximum Course Load

Full-time enrollment at the undergraduate level and maximum course load are defined in the chart given below:

Registration Period Full-time Hours Maximum Course Load
Fall 12-18 21
Winter Intersession 3 4
Spring 12-18 21
May 3 4
Full Summer 12 14
First Summer 6 7
Second Summer 6 7
August Intersession 3 4

This definition does not depend on the mode of course delivery or the location of the course. Students are advised not to take more than the maximum course load without a compelling reason and a cumulative GPA four-tenths of a point above 2.0 for each extra hour desired.

**To register for more than the maximum course load, a student must seek permission from his or her dean’s office.

Course Cancellation Policy

Summer School and Intersessions do not receive external funding; therefore, all operating expenses are paid from generated tuition. While all effort is made to avoid course cancellations, when a course’s enrollment is too low to cover the course’s operating cost, it will be cancelled.


The Department of Student Housing offers rooms throughout the summer and during intersessions for students who are enrolled in courses. You must apply for each summer or intersession term you wish to live in housing. For more information, please visit Student Housing.


Meal plans are available for First, Second and Full Summer Terms. Students have the option to add flex to their accounts for Intersessions. For more information, please visit Ole Miss Dining.


Current students’ parking permits are valid through Intersession and Summer terms.

New students will need to register their vehicle and obtain a parking permit through the Department of Parking and Transportation.

Inclement Weather and School Closings

State law requires that three credit hour courses meet for a certain amount of time. If one day of class is missed due to bad weather, extra time may be added to the remaining days of the session calendar. However, if more than one day is missed, it may be necessary for classes to meet additional days not noted on the published calendar. All decisions about closing the university due to bad weather and about making up time lost will be made by the Provost. Students are encouraged to make their plans with the awareness that make-up days may be required, which may include weekends.

For severe weather notification, sign up for REBALERT through your MyOleMiss account.
