MUW continues partnership with local school district
COLUMBUS, Miss. – Mississippi University for Women will continue to offer dual-credit enrollment to high school students in the Columbus Municipal School District. Dr. Del Phillips, superintendent of CMSD, and MUW President Claudia Limbert signed an agreement renewal today, at 10 a.m. in the Columbus High School library.
The program offers students the opportunity to earn both high school and college credit for courses taken at MUW. Students may be admitted to the program with a minimum overall 2.5 grade point average on all high-school courses and with 14 core high-school units. Students who have not completed 14 core high-school units may be admitted with a minimum of an overall 2.5 GPA on all high-school courses and a minimum composite ACT score of 30 or the equivalent SAT score. All students seeking admission to this program must submit unconditional written recommendations from their high school principals and/or guidance counselors.
Dr. Eric Daffron, interim associate vice president for academic affairs at MUW, looks forward to the continued relationship.
“MUW has enjoyed having students from the Columbus Municipal School District in the past, and we look forward to strengthening our collaboration with the school district with the signing of this revised agreement.”
MUW will continue to offer a variety of courses to high school students, such as English composition, history of civilization, biology and lab, geography, art appreciation, theatre appreciation, music appreciation, psychology, sociology, economics, oral communication, college algebra, pre-calculus, calculus and computer courses.
