Courses Offered

The University will supply a complete list of courses offered both live and through online services. While most students will be limited to courses at the 100 or 200 levels, some exceptions may be considered for advanced students on an individual basis. High school students will take courses with the same requirements and same grading scale as University students.

Tuition and Fees

Students will be charged the regular fees for courses taken through the Bursar's Office, just as any other student is charged. Books and materials are the responsibility of the student.

Class Attendance and Behavior

Students in this program are subject to the same attendance and behavior policies required of all enrolled students. Disciplinary matters will follow procedures outlined in the University's Handbook of Standards and Activities (M Book).

Grades

Students may view grades through the myolemiss portal. If you are receiving high school credit your school may require an official transcript as record of your grade and credit hours. The University typically does not release grades to parents. Please be aware that your grade does go on your permanent academic transcript. A University of Mississippi transcript is a complete record of a student's enrollment in UM, including all undergraduate and graduate courses.

Withdrawal Procedure

A Dual Credit student wishing to withdraw from a course must have written permission from his/her high school to withdraw. That permission should be sent to the Division of Outreach. A student withdrawing from a course is subject to the same rules as any other University student and must meet deadlines for refunds as published in the University calendar.
