Admissions Events

Due to ongoing public health concerns, the Office of Admissions has transitioned to virtual events for prospective and admitted students. We will resume our traditional on-campus events as soon as we are able to.

You and your family are invited to connect with us during a special virtual information night hosted by the admissions counselor for your territory! Learn important details about the admission process, scholarship opportunities, and the rewarding college experiences waiting for you at Southern Miss.

Southern Miss is home to more than 90 career-driven academic programs and a network of faculty and mentors who are dedicated to your success. Hosted by our academic colleges and the Office of Admissions, we invite you and your family to join us for our Academic College Nights, which will give you an overview of the majors housed within that academic college.

You can be your most authentic self on a warm, friendly campus and find your people in any one of our 200+ student organizations. We invite you and your family to join us for our virtual Student Life Panels, during which you can hear from current students about their experiences in addition to getting helpful info from staff about the steps you should be taking to prepare for enrollment.

You and your family are invited to virtually network with some of our most successful alumni working within the professions below while learning more about how Southern Miss has launched many Golden Eagles into purposeful, meaningful careers.

Join us to learn more about basic costs at the university, our generous scholarship opportunities, and important information about the financial aid application process.

 

Schedule an in-person campus tour to discover Southern Miss through an introductory session covering the application process, admissions requirements, scholarship information, and much more. Get first-hand insight on what it’s like to be a Southern Miss student through a walking tour of campus with a current student!

If you prefer to stay off campus, we are offering Virtual Admission Sessions. Chat one-on-one with an Admissions representative in this 30-minute session to get answers to questions regarding the admissions process, housing, scholarships, financial aid and orientation. A representative from the Office of Admissions will contact you with log-in instructions prior to your scheduled time.

Experience Southern Miss today!

The Office of Admissions is proud to partner with the Mississippi Association of College Registrars and Admissions Officers (MACRAO) to produce a virtual college fair experience for Mississippi students. These events will be statewide, open-registration events that allow students across Mississippi to have access and opportunities to meet with and explore affiliated colleges virtually.

There is no charge to students or families to attend these virtual fairs, but students are required to register beforehand so that they can access the fair once it has begun. 

We look forward to meeting future Golden Eagles at the following virtual college fairs:
