University of Mississippi Policies

The University of Mississippi is dedicated to supporting and sustaining a safe and scholarly community of learning dedicated to nurturing excellence inside and outside of the classroom in the spirit of The University Creed.

From the time of application for admission through the actual awarding of a degree, students accept the rights and responsibilities of membership in the University’s community. Students are expected to uphold community values by exercising a high standard of conduct at all times. Each student has a duty to become familiar with University values and standards reflected in University policies, and each student has a duty to honor University values and standards reflected in University policies.


M Book

The M Book contains many of the University’s values and standards. Annually, the Office of the Dean of Students and the Office of Conflict Resolution and Student Conduct publish the M Book to assist students with understanding their rights and responsibilities. While the M Book is a compilation of many different policies, it is an abbreviated guide of University policies and not a complete digest of all policies.

Policy Directory

The University of Mississippi Policy Directory is a central location for accessing University-wide policies. Policies can be viewed by responsible office as well as discovered via a free form search by keyword. After selecting a policy, the effective date, status, and the history of the policy’s review and approval are available to review.
