Note that workshops are limited to 20 students.  Let us know on the registration form if the workshop is full and you are still interested.  We will do our best to either schedule another workshop or help you make an appointment with our Student Success Coach to work on that skill. 

Library

Speed Library is a key partner in the academic, professional, and personal success of Mississippi College students, faculty, and staff.  This includes not only ‘library as place’, but excellent resources and services to promote and inspire teaching, learning, and research. 

Writing Center 

The Mississippi College Writing Center offers writing consultations free-of-charge to MC students. The Center is staffed by highly-qualified undergraduate tutors who conduct interactive, one-on-one sessions with students of all disciplines. Our goal is to help clients become better writers - not just to improve one piece of writing. Therefore, we do not simply serve as a proofreading or editing service; instead, we help our clients understand and improve their writing processes.

Counseling Center

Student Counseling and Disability Services serves students as they explore educational options, establish career directions and cope with personal adjustments. Because each individual is viewed as a whole person with personal, academic, and career concerns that are interrelated, they offer a variety of services.

Tutoring

Tutoring and supplementary instruction are provided in nearly every department.  Explore the tutoring link above to see the most current hours being offered.  If you have any questions,  please visit either the individual department office or webpage.

Career Services

The Office of Career Services is a resource for students throughout their time at Mississippi College and for up to four years after graduation. The  professionals in the Career Services office facilitate the career development process by discussing future career plans, promoting available job opportunities, assisting in the refinement of resumes and providing interview coaching as well as job search guidance.

Dyslexia Center

The Dyslexia Education and Evaluation Center seeks to enable students to become self-directed life-long learners through facilitating research-based instruction, which will provide remediation in the areas of reading, spelling, and writing skills.
