Student Consumer Information Disclosures
The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 requires that universities make available to current and prospective students important information concerning each institution’s academic programs, retention rates, graduation rates, crime reports, financial aid procedures and much more in an effort to ensure fairness and transparency for all higher education consumers. The University has developed this page to serve as the central portal for obtaining necessary information about our institution. It is our hope that this concerted effort between The University of Mississippi and the Department of Education to provide this data will allow all students to access the information they need to make the best college decision possible for them and their future.
For additional information about The University of Mississippi and a comparison to other higher education institutions, please see the College Navigator website maintained by the U.S. Department of Education. This site contains useful information concerning student activities and services across more than 7,000 institutions of higher learning in the United States, including the University of Mississippi.
