Ole Miss to begin accepting Common Application

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — 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.
