At The University of Southern Mississippi, we recognize the significant sacrifices and service of student-veterans. That’s why we’re dedicated to providing you the support you need to excel in the classroom and succeed in civilian life. Online at Southern Miss offers over 45 undergraduate and graduate degrees and certificates that will prepare you for a career in education, business, nursing, healthcare and technology.

We pride ourselves in offering the best values and services to those who deserve it the most: our veterans, service members and families.

Our Center for Military Veterans, Service Members and Families is meeting the needs and academic interests of our veterans, active-duty service members, their families, and survivors. The establishment of the Center means there is a place that student-veterans and their family members can call their own: a beacon of assistance on both of our campuses, where students can find support while they pursue the educational opportunities they earned as members of the Armed Services or as dependents alongside their family members. As one of the top educational institutions in the country working to ensure success of America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses, Southern Miss is proud to have been named a 2015 Top University by Military Advanced Education and designated by Victory Media as a 2015 Military Friendly School.
