LONG BEACH - The University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast wants to ask high school seniors an important question: Why wait to start your college career until after graduation? Southern Miss says you don't have to, and they're confirming it with a dual-enrollment opportunity for high school seniors Aug. 14 in Long Beach.

From 10 a.m. to noon, students will be able to participate in academic advising, conduct fall registration and find out more about financial aid and admissions from officials set up in the Advanced Education Center at the Gulf Park campus.

Classes available to high school seniors on the Gulf Park campus include biology, chemistry, composition, college algebra, calculus, psychology, geography, world geography and world civilization, American government and sociology.

Enrollment specialist Kathy Mathis said students should come prepared with transcripts and official ACT or SAT scores. "We also request a letter of recommendation from the high school counselor," she said.

Fall classes begin Aug. 23. To receive a complete class schedule guide along with an application for admission, call (228) 865-4599 or attend dual-enrollment registration this Saturday.
