George County Center Section

George County Center

Students should read and be familiar with the information contained in the current Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College Student Handbook. Of particular interest are the policies on “Due Process in Student Discipline” and “Student Grievance Procedures”. It is the responsibility of each student to carefully read and understand these policies.

This section of the handbook contains supplemental information for specific procedures at the George County Center.

Emergency Procedures

When possible, the following Emergency Medical Plan should be followed when a student, employee, or other person becomes injured or ill at the Center.

Any person discovering a fire or other emergency situation should immediately notify the Administrative Office when possible or dial 911.

In the event a student is injured or becomes ill, instructors/staff should notify someone in administration immediately. First aid kits are located in the Administrative Offices and the Nursing lab.

In the case of a serious accident, illness, or injury, it may be necessary for the person discovering the injury or illness to immediately call 911 and then notify an available administrator.

All safety precautions should be enforced and the injured or ill person should not be moved until he/she has been checked.

Emergency procedures should be followed as specified. Posted on the wall of each classroom and shop are maps for building evacuation and procedures for specific emergencies.

Financial Aid

Students should visit the college website at mgccc.edu and click on the Financial Aid link for more information. Financial aid for the George County Center is processed through the Perkinston Campus. A George County Center student must select Perkinston as the college site for aid to be awarded to when submitting a FAFSA application.
