Enrolling for DSU Graduate Credit

Receiving Graduate Credit Hours for your participation in The Most Southern Place on Earth, Music, Culture and History of the Mississippi Delta

Delta State University will waive the cost of tuition for five graduate credits for those who complete the NEH sponsored workshop. One credit hour now costs $621 (for out-of-state residents) so that’s the equivalent of over $3,000, and it’s almost for FREE.   Here is what you need to do to take advantage of this:

  • Enroll in the DSU Graduate Program as a non-degree student.  Do this by filling in the form available here (the second page just needs a check mark at the “Non-Degree box.” If you are in the June workshop, check “Summer I” and for the July workshop, check “Summer II.”) Graduate Enrollment Form.
  • Submit the Graduate School application together with these things:

        A check for $30 made out to Delta State University

        One of the following proofs of undergraduate education:

a copy of your transcript
a copy of your four-year diploma
a copy of your teaching certificate

Once you’ve done these things, send all the materials to DSU at the address given on page 2 of the application, and notify Lee Aylward at laylward@deltastate.edu that you have completed your application.  Lee will make sure you are on the register for RRS 592: Special Topics in Rural and Regional Studies:Cultural Heritage of the Mississippi Delta.  You will be able to receive an official transcript for your own use at any time following the workshop.  There is no charge to you for the credit hours.  You must be accepted to the NEH Landmarks workshop to enroll in this class and receive credit.  Do not apply for the credit hours until you have been accepted into the workshop.

Should you want undergraduate credits rather than graduate credits, contact Lee Aylward.
