Employee Tuition Waiver
Full-time employees/retirees, their spouse, and dependents who are children of full-time employees/retirees are eligible for a tuition waiver. However, all fees must be paid in full (registration fee, resource fee, Technology fee, etc.). For a child of a full-time employee to qualify, they must be:
- under age 19, or
- under age 24 and a full-time student, or
- permanently disabled and living with the parent/employee and the parent/employee provides at least 50% of their support, and the child is not filing a joint tax return of their own.
It will be necessary for the employee to certify in writing to the Vice President of Administration and Finance, or the Vice President of the campus that the child meets the criteria. Recipients of the employee tuition waiver are expected to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress as outlined in the financial aid section of the MGCCC catalog. These funds are non-refundable to students.
Senior Citizens Tuition Waiver
Mississippians ages 65 and older (and retirees ages 62-64) have the opportunity to attend most MGCCC classes tuition-free! These students must meet regular admission requirements, enroll, and register on the first day of classes for space-available courses only. They also must pay regular student fees (registration, resource fee, technology, etc). Classes do not include private or semi-private music lessons.
