This is by far one of the best schools I have ever been to. The staff at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College (MGCCC) was amazing and so helpful. There isn't anything that I would change, they always kept the campus clean, and they always had the building clean. One of the best things about it was the learning lab, which is where you could go to get free one on one hel with a tutor for any subject!

I love Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College; the professors are amazing and they are always there for their students. I feel very safe attending MGCCC because they have a campus police department; who is always there. MGCCC goes the extra mile to get their students involve with the campus. MGCCC does not just offer full semester classes but they also offer half semester classes, weekend classes night classes, and many more options. The food is AMAZING! I would recommend MGCCC to anybody because it is a great school.
I’ve been at MGCCC for three years, and it’s been an overall great experience. The education I’ve received has been exceptional. I feel completely prepared for my next school. However, I was unaware that FAFSA only pays for a certain amount of junior college credit hours. My advisor would tell me to retake classes that didn’t matter in the long run, which used up all of my available FAFSA credit hours. Other than that, though, the educational experience is great. I have loved being a student at this school.
