Welcome to MC

A variety of experiences will immerse you into the Mississippi College campus culture and help set the stage for a successful college experience.

Welcome to MC

Welcome to community. Welcome to your future. Welcome to the conversation. Welcome to campus. Welcome to family. Welcome to MC!

Given the current sitituation with COVID-19, our summer orientation sessions originally scheduled in June and July have been cancelled. But we have planned a variety of experiences both virtually throughout the summer and in-person in late summer that will help new students learn about campus, prepare for August move-in and register for academic classes.

Welcome to Community

We will be kicking off virtual small groups in mid-May. New freshmen will be divided up primarly by academic department and major. Transfer students will also be divided into small groups. An orientation leader will reach out to you to introduce themselves and let you know when your small group will meet virtually.

Welcome to Your Future

You will have the opportunity to sign up for your fall 2020 classes virtually! This will happen in two phases.

First, you will go through pre-advising with an MC staff member who will get you up to speed with all of the software we use to keep you connected academically. Once you've completed this, you will meet virtually with your academic advisor and get registered for classes. We plan to get you pre-advised in May and you'll be able to start meeting with your academic advisor in June. Even though we cannot be together in person, we want to do everything we can to get you set and ready for classes in August.

Welcome to the Conversation

If you're on Instagram, follow @welcome2mc for updates, introductions to our student welcome teams and more! We will also be using your campus email to send out videos and to announce virtual information sessions on a wide range of topics- all things you'll want to learn about before you arrive on campus in August. We will also post updates on this page.

Welcome to Family

We will begin introducing you to campus life (in-person) at Mississippi College during Welcome Week which begins with on Monday, August 10, 2020.  Welcome Week is a week of events and activities for students only that will have you calling MC "family" in no time!

Are you ready for the Welcome to MC experience?

By signing up below, you will be placed in an orientation small group, and a staff member will contact you in May to begin the advising experience. We can't wait to welcome you!
