The UMHS is not responsible for determining if pre-requisites have been met prior to taking a course. It is the student's responsibility to work with an advisor prior to enrollment to determine if he/she is eligible to earn credit for a course. No refunds will be issued outside of the refund policy due to prerequisites not being met prior to enrollment.
All students should follow the outlined UMHS proctor policy as outlined under the Policies tab.
Minimum completion period
A student may not complete a course in fewer than four weeks for a half unit course and six weeks for a full unit course from the date the first written work is received at the University of Mississippi High School without advance permission from the administration.
A final numerical grade will be sent to the student's local school, as applicable, upon completion of the course and schools will assign the equivalent letter grade based on their own grading scale.
Upon completion of a course, students should complete a Grade Report Request Form for the transcript to be mailed to their local school. Schools will only receive official documentation of the student’s final grade after the course is completed. Schools will not be updated on a student’s status in the class, unless requested by the student in writing. Parents will receive a progress report monthly via email.

Courses for Seniors

This deadline ensures all documentation arrives at the school in time for graduation. This deadline does not apply if the student is not graduating during the current school year.
