Important Information For Dual Credit Students

Welcome to The University of Mississippi! We are glad you are taking a class for credit at the university and at your high school. This should be an exciting experience for you. While you take college level classes, you will likely have many questions. Please read below to find links to important policies and web pages of benefit to you.

Please remember this is not a high school class. Your professor will treat you as a regular student, capable of completing collegiate level work. If you find yourself struggling or falling behind, please contact your professor for help as soon as possible.


Class Attendance and Conduct

Students are subject to the same attendance and behavior policies required of all enrolled students. Each individual professor will determine their course's attendance and other in-class policies. Disciplinary matters will follow procedures outlined in the University's Handbook of Standards and Activities (M Book).

Grades

Students may view grades using your my.olemiss.edu account. 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 Dual Credit office. 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.
