Why Ole Miss and UM-Tupelo?

The University of Mississippi is a public comprehensive university with an established history of academic excellence.  

Recognizing UM's outstanding academic programs, Phi Beta Kappa selected the university in 2001 to shelter a chapter of what is recognized as the nation's oldest and most prestigious undergraduate honor society.  UM was the first--and remains the only--public institution of higher education in Mississippi chosen for this honor.  

A degree from Ole Miss is not merely a piece of paper certifying that the required number of courses have been completed in a satisfactory manner.  It is recognition of the completion of a rigorous academic program respected by other universities and employers around the world.

A degree from Ole Miss is also a wise investment.  UM has been ranked as one of America's best college buys by Forbes.  UM-Tupelo and the UM Office of Financial Aid administer a variety of financial assistance programs designed to make an Ole Miss degree accessible to everyone.

UM is committed to bringing its quality and affordable undergraduate and graduate programs to Northeast Mississippi at its regional campus in Tupelo.  Housed in the Advanced Education Center with Itwamba Community College, UM-Tupelo is conveniently located at 1918 Briar Ridge Road off McCullough Boulevard.

The University works in conjunction with area community college partners to help Northeast Mississippi students complete their college degrees.  Junior, senior, and graduate-level college coursework is offered through day, evening, and online courses.  Students are able to continue working, maintain important roles in family life, and stay active in local communities.
