University Parallel Programs are designed as the first two years of four-year college/university curricula leading to a baccalaureate degree. Students who plan to transfer to a specific four-year institution are expected to obtain a catalog or bulletin from that college or university. MGCCC can then parallel freshman and sophomore courses required in the lower division of that institution according to various majors. Students undecided about which senior institution they will attend should consult either the B.A. or the B.S. Preparatory Curriculum listed below.
Any student who was not eligible for regular admission to a public Mississippi university must attain a 2.0 grade point average in the following courses at MGCCC to be eligible to transfer: English Composition I & II, College Algebra or above, two Sciences with laboratory, Humanities — 6 semester hours, and Fine Arts — 3 semester hours.
