The Emerging Scholars Partnership brings MGCCC Phi Theta Kappa and Honors College Advisors together with counselors, principals, parents, students and teachers from local school districts to prepare high school and college students to reach their full potential, receive scholarships and become academic champions.
This past spring, 252 MGCCC graduates were awarded $3.2 million in transfer scholarships. That equates to more than $12,700 each to complete the remaining two years of college toward a bachelor’s degree! These same students also received a variety of scholarships at MGCCC, with most students paying little or no tuition for their two years at Gulf Coast.
The Emerging Scholars programs will not only help school districts prepare students for opportunities to succeed through scholarships, but will provide a clearinghouse of scholarships available to students through MGCCC and for transfer after they graduate with an associate degree.
Join us for a virtual Signing Day and Orientation at MGCCC!
Monday, May 11, 2020
MGCCC is excited to host a virtual Signing Day & Orientation for our entering student scholars on Monday, May 11! This exclusive orientation is for academic and career/technical scholars in high school who have a 20 or higher on the ACT or will be receiving a New Century Skills Scholarship. Those who qualify will receive a private invitation with a registration link via mail and email.
This event is designed to celebrate the accomplishments of our new entering Scholars and reward them with an early opportunity to register for classes. At this time, we are planning to host the event virtually as the safety of our students and campus community is a top priority. We love showcasing our campuses and will offer the event in a traditional face-to-face format if permitted.
After registering for the event, an Enrollment Services Specialist will contact you to begin the advisement process. To show our appreciation, we have a special Signing Day gift for our scholars that will be mailed along with a folder containing personalized information and enrollment details.
During the event, student scholars will learn about our campus resources, Honors program, receive information regarding financial aid and select their campus housing (if applicable).
At the conclusion of your Signing Day experience, you will meet with a college representative to finalize your program of study and plans for your freshman semester at MGCCC!
We look forward to hosting all of our future Bulldogs and we can’t wait to see you #InTheBlue!
