Students at UnionWelcome to the Mississippi State Developmental Studies Program “front door”. Come in and let us help you start your studies. We’re glad you’re here! This web site is designed to give you all the basic information you need to enter the Developmental Program at Mississippi State University.

Our major focus is to help you succeed in your college career. In the Developmental Studies program we provide a path for under-prepared Mississippi students to enter and graduate from Mississippi State University.

Prospective students enroll in the Developmental Studies program and attend MSU classes in Mathematics, Reading and English during the summer months as well as a year-long academic support laboratory. They receive training in study skills and receive counseling to enhance their ability to succeed at the university.  After successfully completing the summer program, students may be admitted to any senior college in the state.

My staff and I are glad to answer any questions you may have about our program. Our office is located at Room 2207, Mitchell Memorial Library and our office phone number is 662-325-1353. We look forward to working with you at Mississippi State University.
