Welcome to Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, an educational institution that has been committed to making a positive difference in people’s lives every day for 100 years! As one of the Top 100 associate degree-producing community colleges in the nation, we are proud to serve the four-county district of Jackson, George, Harrison and Stone counties.
Gulf Coast ensures you an opportunity to achieve your educational goals by providing programs and services designed for students who plan to seek a four-year degree, train for immediate employment, or transition to a new career. In fact, research reflects that Gulf Coast students who transfer to a four-year institution perform as well or better than students who begin their education at the respective institution.
Dedicated, caring faculty members provide world-class instruction in traditional and hybrid class formats as well as on weekends, evenings and online. You can choose a schedule to complement your lifestyle. Just click on the Future Student link on our website to learn about academic, career-technical, eLearning, workforce development and continuing education programs.
We invite you to experience residential life in your “home away from home” at the Perkinston Campus, the only location with residence halls and the home of ten collegiate sports teams. For scholarship information and other financial assistance, please contact one our financial aid offices or the MGCCC Alumni/Foundation.
The college promotes community and economic development programs and services to assist individuals who are preparing to enter the workforce or seeking to upgrade skills ranging from computer applications to supervisory/management to advanced manufacturing. Strong business and industry partnerships provide opportunities for employment of graduates, internships and program enhancements.
I personally invite you to visit any campus/center location as you make your choice for higher education. College representatives will be pleased to arrange a tour of our showcase facilities and high-quality learning environment.
We look forward to making a positive difference in your life and to your becoming a successful graduate and lifelong friend of Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.
