Military Students and Veterans
Mississippi College is committed to honoring our student veterans, current service members, veteran dependents and survivors with veteran-focused educational and student support services.
The Veterans Outreach Office Is Proud to Serve our Military Students
The MC Veteran Outreach Office is committed to ensuring our veteran and military students have the tools and resources they need to be successful in a challenging, dynamic and diverse academic environment. Additionally, we can help determine which benefits military dependents and/or spouses may be eligible for. We hope that you will feel welcome to call, email, or visit us with any questions, concerns, or needs that you may have. We will do our best to meet those needs or put you in contact with someone, or an office, that can assist you.
The primary function of the Veteran Outreach Office is to certify enrollment to the Dept of Veterans Affairs for students that are using military education benefits at MC. In addition to certifying enrollment, the Veteran Outreach Office can provide information pertaining to veteran-related services, veteran and dependent scholarship information, and general information pertaining to the GI Bill®.
MC is a participating institution in the Yellow Ribbon Program. As such, we will fund tuition and fee expenses that exceed what is covered by the Post-9/11 GI Bill®. The Yellow Ribbon Program was established by the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008.
Teresa Hill is the primary VA Certifying Official and Veteran Outreach Coordinator. You can reach her at 601-925-3272 or at [email protected].
