If you’re an adult considering going back to college or attending college for the first time, Mississippi’s public institutions have a number of options available to you.
A number of degree programs are aligned with strategic workforce needs such as healthcare, law enforcement, general business, and others. A number of our programs are structured to enable students to successfully achieve their educational and career goals while maintaining their commitment to job and family. The primary mission of Mississippi’s degree programs is to meet the career and personal educational needs of adult learners while increasing the present-day workforce across the state, region, nation, and world. Cost, convenience, and commitment all come together at IHL’s programs for non-traditional and adult learners.
These degree programs are designed for students who have started but not completed an undergraduate degree; or who have started in one major, but wish to change majors without adding significantly to their time to completion.
If you fit one of these descriptions, Mississippi’s adult degree programs may be for you:
- Non-traditional students who have completed some college, but have not earned a college degree;
- Non-traditional students who want to return to school after earning an Associate’s Degree;
- Students whose work or family circumstances required relocation before completing a degree at another institution;
- Students who changed majors more than once and whose collection of earned credits does not fulfill a traditional degree;
- Traditional learners who began a professional program (such as nursing or education) and discovered, after earning considerable credits, the profession is “not for them”.
