Student Engagement


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

Orientation: Welcome to MC

MC is an incredible place, and we are so excited to welcome new students to our community! After you've been accepted to MC and turned in all the necessary information, Orientation will be your first step in officially being an MC student. Orientation will give you an opportunity to begin understanding what it means to be a student at MC, as well as sign up for your first semester of classes at MC. 

Freshmen Orientation Dates

Freshmen Orientation Sessions are a 1.5 day experience that includes small group meetings, large group sessions, activities and academic registration. New freshmen will have the opportunity to catch a glimpse of what life at MC will look like when they arrive for the fall semester. New freshmen can register to attend Orientation alone, or can register to bring up to two guests.

Regular Registration

MC will offer a Regular Registration session in August for the fall semester.

More information about Regular Registration will be posted in summer 2022.
