MC Student Counseling Services (SCDS):

COVID-19 Response

Commiserate with colleges and universities across the country, MC - Mississippi College has shifted to online instructional formats for the rest of the spring semester.  Limiting person-to-person contact to protect the health and well-being of our students, staff, faculty and employees is our primary focus.  

SCDS - Student Counseling Services has also shifted to a secure HIPAA compliant online counseling format.  We continue to offer convenient, quality counseling services to our remaining on-campus and in-state students.  Our goal is to assure continuity of care for existing clients and make services accessible for new clients seeking care.  

Who we can serve: 

  • MC STUDENTS IN THE STATE OF MS: Any registered MC student still in the state of MS and/or are currently housed on campus.

Please let us know if you’re new to SCDS or a returning client.  We will schedule you an appointment and send online forms for you to complete and return to us prior to services being offered. These forms authorize our counseling staff to work with you in secure online counseling sessions.   

Who we cannot serve:
