Academic Dean’s Office for Freshman Studies Students

The Dean of General Studies is the academic dean for all Freshman Studies students. For forms or policy appeals that require an academic dean’s signature, Freshman Studies students should visit the Office of General Studies located in the Jackson Avenue Center, Suite K. The following forms are available on the General Studies website:

  • Permission to Transfer Credit – Dean’s office approval is necessary prior to taking a course from another institution to ensure that the course will count as expected when transferred back to The University of Mississippi.
  • Permission for Late Course Withdrawal—After the deadline for withdrawing from a course in a semester, a Freshman Studies student must obtain permission from the Office of General Studies by submission of our late course withdrawal appeal form.
  • Permission for Course Overload—A Freshman Studies student who wishes to take more courses in a semester than allowed must obtain permission from the Office of General Studies by submission of our course overload appeal form.
