Adult Learner Orientation

Due to lower-than-expected registration, we are no longer planning to offer the Adult Learner Orientation scheduled for Saturday, July 19th, 2014. Adult students interested in registering for classes and learning more about the university may contact the Office of Orientation at 662-329-7350 or visit to schedule an alternative orientation date. Our adult learners are an important part of our university community, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
