Why Ole Miss and UM-Tupelo?

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

Academically, 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.

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 selected for this honor.

A degree from Ole Miss is also a wise investment. UM is consistently ranked as one of America's best college buys by Forbes magazine. 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. See Costs and Financial Aid.
