We are proud to announce that we have a Golden Eagle in every single state! With students enrolled from all 50 states and from other countries around the world, Online at Southern Miss attracts a diverse student population that reaches far beyond our physical location in South Mississippi.

“A lot of people don’t know this, but our online programs are reaching students in every state in the nation,” said Dr. Tom Hutchinson, director of the Office of Online Learning at The University of Southern Mississippi.

Being ranked as the #1 Most Affordable Online College in the Nation for 2016-2017, and our quality education, are just a couple of reasons why students from all 50 states are flocking to our programs.

Online learning allows people, no matter their location, to receive the education that they want and deserve. They’re able to keep their jobs, family obligations, and current residency because of this convenient, flexible format of learning.

We’re so happy to be able to serve students from all across the nation and help them reach their professional goals!

“We offer a host of services to our online students to keep them connected to the university. These include free online tutoring through our Writing Center, ways to save money on textbooks, study abroad options, and the Center for Military Veterans, Service Members and Families, which offers an abundance of free resources to online military students,” said Hutchinson.

The goal of Online at Southern Miss is to provide academically rigorous programs to students – no matter if they’re here in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, or Anchorage, Alaska. We’re bringing the classroom, and a touch of Mississippi, to you!
