Registration Payment

Paying by Credit Card: Complete your registration via credit card. (I am so sorry, but you will end up repeating some of this information again. Welcome to a clunky university system. I also know that the date in the online system says July 12th. The nice tech guy is trying to fix it.)

Paying by Check: To mail a check (we still take those), please make checks payable to “The University of Mississippi” and mail with a copy of your completed registration (which will be emailed to you) to the following address: UM Writing Project, The University of Mississippi, PO Box 1848, University, MS 38677.
