2022 JumpStart Registrations are CLOSED - Waitlists are CLOSED. Please check back December 1st for Summer 2023.
JumpStart is a program for incoming U.S. and International freshmen wanting to begin their fall semester during the summer. Students can choose to attend the June, July, or August session. During the program, students take a minimum of two 3-credit hour classes (one 3-credit hour class during August) from a wide variety of options including DS courses (Developmental Studies).
Students live on campus and start learning about life at Ole Miss before the rest of the freshman class. The program offers workshops, guest speakers and guided social activities that provide participants the tools needed to make the next four years a success.
To participate in JumpStart, the student must have been admitted to Ole Miss beginning the freshman year in the fall and register for the required number of credit hours for the selected summer term(s). Note: students can register for the JumpStart Program BEFORE attending Summer Orientation and/or registering for summer classes.
