Mississippi University for Women


Life-Long Learner Program

Life-Long Learning status affords an opportunity for individuals to enroll in a few courses of specific interest to them without completing the regular application. Individuals applying to MUW as a Life-Long Learner may enroll in classes for academic credit, or they may audit courses (no academic credit is awarded).

Requirements and Restrictions for Life Long Learner Applicants:

  • You must be 21 or older.
  • Life-Long Learning students are not eligible for financial aid, scholarships or institutional grants.
  • Students entering as Life-Long Learners may take the courses offered for credit, or they may audit the course.
  • Individuals may not continue to enroll as a Life-Long Learner, after earning 21 semester hours of academic credits without special permission from the Provost.
  • After completing 21 hours of classes for academic credit, students may be required to apply through the regular university admissions process.
  • Classes taken not for credit (auditing) can not be applied to degree programs nor to the Executive Certificate Programs.
  • Life Long Learners should refer to the university calendar for general admission deadlines.
Students who do not desire to seek a degree but are interested in taking courses for credit (with or without a grade) should apply for admission to MUW as a Lifelong Learner. However, students interested in taking non-credit courses, should contact the Office of Continuing Education.
