What Students Are Saying

4.10 Average Rating
I will give Mississippi College a 9 out of 10. They're friendly and nice to everyone, and they actually help you with anything you need to get more money for tuition and fees. Overall great college.
Samuel from Gautier, MS
MC has provided me with a perfect view of what it would be like to be a student of the college. The personalized campus visit I had on Friday, October 5 was well organized and everything was well accounted for. I especially commend their visit coordinator and MC Scouts for making my visit as enjoyable as possible.
