WHO CAN BE CONSIDERED

Freshman scholarships and Honors College admission are available to students attending Southern Miss the fall semester immediately following high school graduation. To be considered, you must have submitted an application for admission, the $40 application fee, your high school transcript, and ACT or SAT scores by the stated scholarship deadlines.

 

STANDARDIZED TEST SCORES

For general freshman scholarship consideration and Honors College admission, only standardized test scores earned through December 2016 will be considered.

 

CORE GPA

Core GPA is calculated using the student’s grades earned in coursework that is part of the College Preparatory Curriculum (CPC) as set forth by the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning. Core GPA is calculated on a four-point scale; thus, weighted grades earned in AP, advanced or honors classes are not calculated into core GPA.
