Continuing Education & Non-Credit Programs

The Division of University Outreach and Continuing Education, in conjunction with the academic colleges and schools of The University of Mississippi, designs and implements education programs for credit, certification, professional development, and personal enhancement. The Division supports the mission of The University of Mississippi by promoting lifelong learning through the development of diverse educational opportunities, commitment to quality, and dedication to service.

If you need to refresh or upgrade current skills, learn new ones, or want to take a course for personal development and interest, we have courses that are right for you! We offer a variety of courses at the Advanced Education Center or online through Ed2Go. 

If you have any questions or would be interested in coordinating continuing education opportunities with the University of Mississippi-Tupelo, please contact Alicia Goodson.
