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. In 2024, we are excited to offer both one-day and two-day Orientation sessions. Both freshmen and transfer students can sign up for any of our orientation sessions. The cost of Orientation is built in to your MC tuition and fees, therefore there is no cost for new students to attend orientation! Up to 2 guests can attend with each student for a separate fee of $30 per guest.
