Application Process

1. Complete housing application

Application may be downloaded here or requested from the Office of Residence Life at (601) 318-6102

Please indicate on application which dorm you would prefer.

2. Pay housing prepayment

This fee for the amount of $150 is required to confirm your room reservation.

The Residence Life Office can accept cash or check, but a credit card payment must be completed in the business office. In this special case, please notify the Residence Life Office that you have done so. Your application will not be processed until the housing prepayment fee is received.

3. Mail to the following address

You may send the application and the prepayment fee along with the admissions packet, if you so choose. You can also choose to come to the office to pay in person. Each student under the age of 21 and whose permanent residence is over 50 miles away is required to live on campus. To apply to live off campus, you must submit the Application to Live Off Campus. Students who are disabled should inform the housing director, in addition to the director of Student Support Services at (601) 318-6211
