MC Welcomes Accelerated Degree Program Prospects

June 23, 2009

Mississippi College is making it much easier for working adults to keep their day jobs and earn degrees at night.

MC representatives will spell out the details of its Accelerated Degree Program during an information session Tuesday, July 14. The meeting at 210 Self Hall is at the headquarters of the School of Business. It begins at 6 p.m. on the Clinton campus.

Enrolling more than 400 students, ADP students pursue degrees in business administration, accounting, marketing, public relations, and sociology. Typically, they attend classes two nights a week on campuses in Clinton, Brandon, and Madison.

During the July 14 session, program director Bebe Garrison and others will discuss such things as the application process, financial aid, transcript evaluation and eligibility requirements. Adult students and advisors will offer tips about how to juggle work, family and school.

"I have nothing but great things to say about the ADP program," said Brandon resident Steve Waite, 50, a former information technology director at "The Clarion-Ledger." He is studying sociology. He plans to go the alternate route and teach in a public school near his home in Rankin County.

Waite says all of his MC instructors are "competent and passionate," about their work in the classroom. He enjoys the convenience of taking classes during evening hours on the Clinton campus. Waite expects to graduate at the end of summer term in 2010.
