Prospective Students


Bound and determined? College is about choices and we believe the choice you make to continue your education at Mississippi State University-Meridian will be a major key to your success. Our faculty and staff are planning for your future enrollment and can’t wait to see you on campus. We are here to assist you with a smooth transition, and have developed Partnership Pathways with local community colleges to guide you from day one of your community college enrollment. Let us show you how we’ve helped transfer students be successful for more than fifty years.

When you transfer to the state’s largest university, you will see that transfer students are the heart of MSU-Meridian. All of our current students are transfers so we know how to help you make the transition as seamless as possible. Even the leader of our institution, Dr. Mark Keenum, President of MSU, was a transfer student himself!
