Course Options

The University of Mississippi offers numerous courses to its students. 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 UM students.

Dual Credit students are eligible to take all course formats:

  • Live classes (on the Oxford campus)
  • Online*
  • iStudy** (Independent Study)

*Online courses require an additional online fee in addition to the tuition fee.
**iStudy courses require an additional online registration to the iStudy office.

Current course offerings and time availability can be viewed on my.olemiss.edu under "Course Schedule."

Attention: As of the Fall 2020 semester, new course types have been introduced in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. If a student was registered for live, face-to-face Fall courses during or before Summer 2020, their courses’ formats may have changed.
