MF and MFS No. 1 logosMississippi Gulf Coast Community College has once again solidified its commitment to serving the military community by achieving the remarkable feat of being recognized as the No. 1 Military Friendly and Military Spouse Friendly School in the nation simultaneously. This unprecedented double honor places MGCCC in the top position among large community colleges, triumphing over 1,200 institutions to secure both prestigious designations.

For the second consecutive year, MGCCC has proven its unwavering dedication to supporting our nation’s heroes and their families. The recognition as the leading Military Friendly and Military Spouse Friendly School underscores the institution’s steadfast commitment to providing unparalleled opportunities for active duty military personnel, veterans, and the families of those who serve.

Dr. Mary S. Graham, MGCCC president, expressed her profound gratitude for the prestigious recognition, stating, “We are deeply honored to receive this exceptional acknowledgment, which reaffirms our steadfast dedication to serving those who have bravely served our nation. This dual recognition highlights the tireless efforts of our faculty, staff, and community partners in providing unparalleled support and resources to our military-affiliated students. At MGCCC, we take immense pride in fostering an inclusive and supportive environment that empowers our military community to thrive academically, personally, and professionally.”

The Military Friendly Schools and Military Spouse Friendly Schools lists are comprehensive resources developed by Viqtory, a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business, to assist military-affiliated students in identifying institutions that are committed to their success. These lists are based on extensive research and data-driven surveys evaluating various factors, including academic policies, support services, and campus culture.

MGCCC has been consistently recognized as a top institution in both the lists, showcasing its long-standing dedication to providing exceptional educational opportunities for military-affiliated students. This continuous recognition reflects MGCCC’s ongoing efforts to enhance its programs and services to meet the unique needs of our nation’s heroes and their families.
