Mississippi College

1. Application

Complete our application at least two weeks prior to registration for each semester and pay the $25 application fee.

2. Transcripts

Freshmen should request that their high school mail an official copy of all high school work completed to date to the Office of Admissions.  Upon graduation, applicants must have a final transcript sent including the date of graduation, a signature by a school official, and an official seal.

3. Test Scores

Official ACT or SAT test scores for all applicants who graduated from high school within the last five years must be mailed directly from ACT or SAT headquarters or from the student’s high school.  A minimum score of 18 ACT or an 850 SAT is required for admission to Mississippi College.  Once an application, official transcript, and test score are received, a decision will be made regarding the student’s admission.  If the student is accepted, they will receive a scholarship award offer via mail within 7-10 days of acceptance.

4. Certificate of Immunization

Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) Immunization Certificate is required.  One MMR immunization in the past ten years or two in a lifetime are required.  This document can be faxed, emailed, or hand delivered to the Office of Admission.

5. Housing Fee

For students seeking on-campus housing, a one-time $100 housing fee is required in order to reserve a spot in the residence halls for the student’s desired entry term.  This fee is nonrefundable, so we advise students to pay this fee when they are certain they will be attending MC.  However, max housing capacity does typically occur and the earlier this fee is paid, the more likely a student is to secure a room on campus. See the Office of Residence Life for more information.

Special Requirements


Applicants who have not completed high school will be considered for admission upon achieving passing scores on the General Education Development (GED) test.

Homeschool Students

For homeschooled students, a self-reported transcript that demonstrates completion of a high school equivalent curriculum is accepted. 

For all students, Mississippi College reserves the right to require additional proof of academic achievement determined by the Director of Admissions.
