Oxford, MS –
The University of Mississippi will begin accepting the Common Application on Aug. 1,
The program allows for students to apply to multiple colleges and universities by filling out a single application.
University of Mississippi Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Brandi Hephner LaBanc said in a statement that the university hopes accepting the application will help Ole Miss recruit students who might not otherwise consider the university.
The Common Application says more than 1 million students per year apply to colleges through the program.
Millsaps College and the University of Southern Mississippi are other schools in the state that already accept the application.
