Below please find country analyses for selected countries regarding online enrollment from overseas, specific to the University of Mississippi. Please note this table represents completed analyses for Academic Year 2020/21, and country analyses were prioritized based on a variety of factors including, but not limited to, student population by location, degree program, graduate assistantships committed, and cost of analysis. Some countries are a “no” by default because we were not able to obtain an analysis of the country. If you have any questions about this information please contact OGE.
The information below is very general and applicable only to Academic Year 2020/21 for online enrollment overseas for undergraduates and graduates. Please contact OGE so that we can work together on future programs for students enrolling overseas as there are nuances by country.
