In an effort to increase higher education opportunities for students, Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College and The University of Southern Mississippi have entered into a new concurrent enrollment agreement allowing students in select academic programs to seamlessly complete degrees from both institutions.
At a press conference held at The University of Southern Mississippi’s Gulf Park campus in Long Beach, MGCCC President Mary S. Graham and Southern Miss President Rodney D. Bennett signed a memorandum of understanding agreeing that students may apply for concurrent enrollment in designated academic programs.
“I am excited about our new partnership with Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College,” Bennett said. “The opportunity to co-enroll will expand degree options available to Gulf Coast students, who already have access to more than 50 academic programs offered through our Gulf Park campus. I look forward to working with President Graham and her team to enhance degree opportunities and increase access to higher education for coastal residents.”
