Non-Degree Students


A non-degree student is a mature person of ability and seriousness of purpose who enrolls for limited academic work and does not plan to seek a degree at Millsaps. This may be for the purposes of earning professional certification, admission to graduate or professional schools, taking course work to transfer to another institution, or for personal interest. Non-degree students observe the same regulations concerning attendance, examination and proficiency as regular students.

To apply for admission as a non-degree student:

If you have specific questions about the application process, you may schedule an appointment with Kathie Adams by contacting her at or  601-974-1124.

After you are admitted, you will need to make an appointment with Mrs. Adams to register for your class(es).
