The first step for any first-time student applying for admission to Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College is to create an account and complete an online Application for Admission.
Submit your official final transcript from your high school to MGCCC to the admissions office on the campus you’ll attend.
Applicants are not officially accepted until all admission requirements are met by providing proper documentation. Documentation must be provided before enrollment by the Friday of the 4th week of class. Students failing to do so shall be placed on hold and denied continued enrollment.
Submit your ACT scores or make an appointment to take the ACT. You can send your scores or register for the test at act.org.
All students who display an overall weakness in high school grades or low scores on the ACT, ACCUPLACER, or other college-administered placement exams will be required to enroll in developmental courses.
ACCUPLACER retesting policy: when retesting is necessary, it should only occur after two weeks to allow sufficient opportunity for intervening learning/instruction.
