MGCCC participates in the Articulation Agreement between Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning and Mississippi State Board for Community and Junior Colleges. This agreement has been adopted to help students understand which courses at MGCCC will transfer for credit toward a bachelor’s degree at public Universities throughout Mississippi.
Make sure that the classes you take will transfer to the four-year college or university of your choice by using the Mississippi Articulation Transfer Tool (MATT). The tool can take you step-by-step through the process, or you can browse the courses of each institution.
