USM has a 98May 17 2019Art & Design Department
USM has a 98.5% acceptance rate. I think that says it all. You'd have to be pretty stupid for them not to take your money and get in.
ACT: 28 Female
I went to the University day, which is whenOct 28 2013Criminal
I went to the University day, which is when universities around the state came to my school and recruited. What caught my eye for USM was its Forensic Science Program. So I applied and took my ACT and was admitted to USM. I would advise that they tour the campuse here, because it is beautiful and ever changing. We are building new dorms for incoming freshman, so it would be a nice change for them.
ACT: 19 Male
Low bar for requirementsFeb 16 2012Art & Design Department
Low bar for requirements. You don't want to go to school here. It's simply high school "plus".
ACT: 25 Male
Do well on the ACT and be involvedNov 11 2011Anthropology
Do well on the ACT and be involved. I got my entire school, housing, and meal plan bills all paid for!
ACT: 32 Female
I did 2 years of community college and thenAug 03 2011Nursing
I did 2 years of community college and then applied to southern and have done 2 years there. If you are trying to get in, than just go to community college and get all the easy classes out of the way because they are impossibly hard at the university of southern mississippi.
ACT: 21 Male
