Academic Restart Policy

A former University of Mississippi student who has been out of any educational institution for the 48 consecutive months immediately prior to the time the student wishes to begin academic restart, may start his or her college education completely over by invoking the university’s academic restart policy. The student will be considered as a totally new student from the time of first enrollment after the 48-month hiatus, and all academic regulations for new students (e.g., concerning probation, suspension, and honors) will apply. The new enrollment need not have been at the University of Mississippi.

A student’s grades obtained prior to academic restart will remain on the student’s transcript. However, no grade made prior to academic restart will be included in the student’s cumulative grade-point average, and no credits earned prior to academic restart will fulfill graduation requirements.

A student’s eligibility for academic restart at the University of Mississippi is determined regardless of the student’s restart status at other institutions. A student may use the University of Mississippi’s academic restart policy only one time.

The policies and regulations contained in this online University of Mississippi Catalog are in effect for the current or selected semester. The catalog is not a contract, but rather a guide for the convenience of students. The University of Mississippi reserves the right to 1) change or withdraw courses; 2) change the fees, rules, and schedules for admission, registration, instruction, and graduation; and 3) change other regulations affecting the student body at any time. Implicit in each student’s enrollment with the university is an agreement to comply with university rules and regulations, which the university may modify to exercise properly its educational responsibility.
