Why Ole Miss and UM-Booneville?

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-Booneville 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.

UM is committed to bringing its quality and affordable undergraduate programs to Northeast Mississippi at its regional campus in Booneville. Housed in 105 Hargett Hall Northeast Mississippi Community College, UM-Booneville is conveniently located at 101 Cunningham Blvd., Booneville, Mississippi.
