Online Colleges in Mississippi

Mississippi’s higher education institutions seek regional accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, one of the six most recognized and reputable accreditation agencies in the nation. The association’s Commission on Colleges accredits degree-granting institutions in the 11-state southern region of the United States. This includes public, private, and for-profit colleges.

Colleges and universities that want to obtain or maintain regional accreditation must meet the commission’s high standards in areas such as mission, governance, resources, institutional effectiveness, and faculty. These institutions must also commit to continuous improvement. However, colleges in Mississippi can also become eligible for national accreditation though agencies such as the following:

Both regional and national accreditation agencies are recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

Mississippi has a higher education system comprised of 16 community colleges, 8 private colleges, and 10 public universities. One of the best-known public research universities in the state is the University of Mississippi, located in Oxford and better known as Ole Miss. Public universities like Ole Miss, Mississippi State University, and The University of Southern Mississippi offer a variety of undergraduate and graduate degrees as well as professional certificates.
