Summer College

for High School Students at Ole Miss

Summer College for High School Students is a four-week academic program for high-achieving high school students who want to experience university life.

Qualified students can earn college credits, get familiar with the collegiate environment, and develop social, personal and academic skills that will increase their overall success in college. Participants in Summer College also have the opportunity to gain dual credit (high school and college) for classes taken during the summer.

This year we’re offering only residential programs for domestic students. International students may choose either residential or virtual programs.

Residential students will stay in campus accommodation with their peers and select an academic track of live classes taught by university faculty. There will additionally be activities and field experiences to supplement the academic program.

Virtual students will participate in online courses from home (or anywhere else you plan to be!) and connect with fellow virtual students through chat sessions, virtual tours, and online activities.

“I liked the freedom and responsibility paired with having time to get to know peers. I appreciated being able to do whatever I wanted on campus before/after classes and still having counselors to ask for help.”
