The Schools of Nursing and Pharmacy operate on both the Oxford and Jackson campuses. The Schools of Dentistry, Health Related Professionals and Medicine, and the Health Sciences Graduate School, are based in Jackson only. (Additional healthcare programs are available through the School of Applied Sciences on the Oxford campus.) Other than these exceptions, the schools above are on the Oxford campus.


Admission Policies

Admission to the School - First-semester freshmen entering the School of Applied Sciences must meet the same requirements as those for general admission to the university. Students having completed at least one academic semester who wish to transfer into the school must contact the dean’s office for additional admission requirements and regulations governing change of majors within the school.

Academic Regulations

College/School-wide Degree Requirements

Professional core course work for newly admitted students, readmitted students, and transfer students must be current within a seven-year period at the time of admission to a program, unless more current course work is required by accreditation standards; there will be no limit on general course work.


Each student admitted to the School of Applied Sciences is assigned an academic adviser within the student’s selected major. The adviser’s primary role is to assist a student during registration periods in selecting courses appropriate for his or her degree program. In addition, the academic adviser is available throughout the student’s entire course of study to discuss future plans or possible academic difficulties. Students are reminded, however, that the faculty member’s role is only to give advice. The ultimate responsibility for meeting all degree requirements rests with the student.

Selecting and Changing Majors

Freshmen and transfer students entering the School of Applied Sciences must declare a major on the admissions application. Transfer students must have a transfer GPA of at least 2.0 to declare a major within the School of Applied Sciences.

Students currently or previously enrolled at The University of Mississippi under a different major must request a change of major at the dean's office in the George Street House. A representative of the dean will schedule an appointment with the student to discuss policies and procedures of the school in addition to remaining degree requirements. Students who have completed prior course work at The University of Mississippi must have a 2.0 GPA on all work attempted at the university (resident GPA) as well as on all work attempted at any institution of higher learning (overall GPA) in order to declare a major within the School of Applied Sciences.
