Academic Scholarships

Your hard work deserves to be rewarded.

Generous Academic Scholarships Are Available To Help You Blaze Your Trail.

We understand the obstacles that can get in the way of making your dreams a reality. Funding shouldn't be one of them. MC offers the Speed Scholarship to Mississippi residents, but we know not everyone will qualify. That's why we also offer academic scholarships to incoming freshmen and transfer students. You're working hard to reach your goals and we want to reward you for it. There's something available to students of all achievement levels. Use the calculator below to determine the academic scholarships that you qualify for. You may just discover other scholarship opportunities available to you.

Incoming Freshmen

Incoming freshmen are awarded academic scholarships based on a combination of their standardized test score (ACT/SAT/CLT) and their high school GPA. There is no deadline for academic scholarships, meaning this award can increase, according to our matrix, up until the time you enroll. For that reason, we encourage students to take standardized test multiple times up until the point of enrollment.

Transfer Students

Transfer scholarships are determined by the student's GPA. Students are eligible for transfer scholarships if they can transfer in with 12 or more hours from an accredited institution and have spent more than one full-time semester at a college or university in between high school graduation and their college entry term.

Amounts shown are awarded to students per year as long as the student maintains a minimum of a 2.5 GPA.
