Safeguarding the MC Family

Mississippi College is assessing the rapidly changing spread of the coronavirus. On March 11, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 as a pandemic. Our primary concern is the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff.

We are consulting with health agencies as well as other institutions. Along with many other institutions, we are preparing to transition to an online instructional format in order to minimize the population at risk on campus. We are also limiting international and domestic travel.

I anticipate communicating a detailed plan for the coming weeks before the weekend. We urge you to frequently check our coronavirus webpage at
