View our Data Dive showing the current requirements on masks and face coverings from public colleges and universities in Mississippi for the 2021 fall semester. As of Friday, every public college and university in Mississippi is requiring students, faculty and staff to wear masks indoors.

Mississippi is one of 11 states — including Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming — that currently does not require a COVID-19 vaccination to attend.

Mississippi Today reviewed the mask requirements for each institution through social media accounts, phone calls and examination of the updates posted to each school’s website.

We will update this searchable and downloadable chart regularly as public institutions of higher education navigate the latest COVID-19 restrictions affecting college campuses.
