What Students Are Saying

3.79 Average Rating
My busiest day I am in class for 5 hours. Meaning there's at least another 10 hours of free time during the day. Learn to separate social time and homework. Set time apart for homework. Log off Facebook! Maybe plan frequent study dates with friends. Whatever needs to be done, it's just imperative to study or you'll get behind real quick.
On a lighter note; WORK STUDY! Work = Money. Simple as that. Within the first or second week of July go to the Financial Aid office and ask for Work Study. PUT YOUR NAME ON THE LIST. They may or may not ask you to, YOU ask to if they don't. If you don't put your name on the list, you won't get work study.

To make sure you are at least taking classes geared toward your goals so in case you change up your major you can always apply your classes.
Megan from Pass Christian, MS
The most important advice I have to offer to future students is to choose a major that challenges you. Picking a career just because it is easy will just be a preview of how unfulfilling your life after college will be, because chances are, the career will not be something that interests you. Community colleges are a great way to develop your higher level thinking. Use Gulf Coast as a positive experience that helps transition you from high school to the next level, whether it is a career immediately or a university college. This college can help you in so many ways as long as you let it. It is what you make it.
Amanda from Biloxi, MS
The tips for future students from my prospective would be to make sure you keep in touch with financial aid and with admissions.
Celeste from Pass Christian,Ms, MS
Be prepared to work hard and study.
Lyle from Diberville, MS
Do homework, study for test, but remember to have fun.
Shalante from Wiggins, MS
Community college is a great way to make the switch from high school to college. And it ends up being cheaper to complete 2-3 years in community college then go to the college of your choice. You'll save lots of money, yet still having a great time earning your education.
Raymone from Gulfport, MS
Make sure if your thinking about living on campus to apply early. Also make sure that you get all your transcripts in on time because it will hold up your financial aid.
Richard from Kingstree, SC
