FIRE Speech Code School Rating
If FIRE finds that a university’s policies do not seriously threaten campus expression, that college or university receives a green light rating. A green light rating does not necessarily indicate that a school actively supports free expression in practice; it simply means that the school’s written policies do not pose a serious threat to free speech.
General Education Assessment

Delta State University uses one or more of the following instruments to assess undergraduate progress in core collegiate skills: the Council on Aid to Education Collegiate Learning Assessment (CLA), the Educational Testing Service Proficiency Profile, or the ACT Collegiate Assessment of Academic Proficiency (CAAP).
