UM-Booneville will offer you courses in a flexible format, opportunities to get involved with student organizations, and academic support to assure that you succeed.

Our students at UM-Booneville pursue degrees in a number of fields. We offer degrees in business, elementary education, accounting, general studies, criminal justice, and paralegal studies. UM-Booneville also offers graduate degrees in education. Our students take courses during the day and at night, in a traditional classroom setting or via technology, and in a regular semester format or during intensive intersessions that allow them to complete classes in just two weeks. Our goal is to find ways to help you get the classes you need in the format that works best for you.

By becoming a student at Ole Miss you'll be joining a state flagship university that Forbes Magazine has ranked as a best buy in higher education.
