OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) – A new partnership will help broaden global access and recruit international students to Ole Miss.

The university and Shorelight Education have agreed to the new joint program.

The two entities will work together to create a program to enhance the educational experience of students who come to Ole Miss from around the world, as well as those students who come from every county in Mississippi.

“With an English language accelerator program and intensive advising and acculturation experiences, the program will help the university become a model for international access and student success for both undergraduate and graduate students,” the university stated.

Ole Miss Chancellor Jeffrey Vitter says increasing enrollment of international students and helping all Ole Miss students become globally minded alumni will prove beneficial to every Ole Miss student and the entire state.

The first students are expected to arrive in 2019.
