Prospective Graduate Students
Graduate Programs Offered by the EE Department
Admission

In almost all cases, graduate admission will fall into one of three categories: Full Standing Admission, Conditional Admission, or Qualifying for Admission. For details regarding these categories, see http://gradschool.olemiss.edu/prospective-students/admission-categories/. In general the EE department does not admit students under Quailfying for Admission.

A student seeking admission to one of the graduate programs offered by the department should follow the procedure listed below:

Application in general should be completed by Nov. 1 for spring enrollment and April 1 for fall enrollment (see Graduate School Important Dates and Deadlines http://gradschool.olemiss.edu/important-dates-and-deadlines/). You need to go to our graduate school website http://gradschool.olemiss.edu/ to complete the online application. There is no specific application for the financial support. The department will offer assistantship positions based on the available fund and the rank of all the admitted students. However, you may contact individual professors you want to work with to check whether there are any other possible opportunities.
