Academic qualifications surge as Ole Miss tops 21,500 students
After watching enrollment grow by more than 6 percent each of the past two years, University of Mississippi officials took steps to control out-of-state admissions this fall. Even with the tougher standards, Ole Miss enrollment hit a new all-time record this fall.
Preliminary enrollment figures show a total unduplicated headcount on all the university’s campuses of 21,535. That’s up 691 students from last fall, a 3.3 percent increase.
“The dramatic increase in applications over the last few years led to a decision to manage our growth through a new admissions process for nonresident students,” Chancellor Dan Jones said. “A first step was the decision to limit the size of the freshman class to assure a good academic and campus life experience for our students.
