Veterans and Military Services
At Meridian Community College, we believe that our military service members and veterans students and their family members deserve the opportunity to begin or continue their education in preparation for the next step in their careers.
For more information about veterans and military student educational benefits visit the sites below.
Mississippi Senate Bill 2127 (amends state law 37-107-25) for nonresident students who are United States Veterans and/or their beneficiaries who are entitled to Veterans Educational Assistance under Title 38 of the United States Code are qualified as in-state residents for tuition purpose upon enrollment at MCC.
Nonresident Veterans (whether or not entitled to Educational Assistance under Title 38 of the United States Code) must demonstrate release or discharge from active duty with not less than an Honorable discharge or a discharged under Honorable conditions. Nonresident beneficiaries must demonstrate a valid Transfer of Entitlement (TOE) for Veterans Educational Assistance under Title 38 of the United States Code.
MCC named to Best for Vets list
Meridian Community College’s efforts to support the military, veterans and their dependents have resulted in the College being named to The Military Times’ list of ‘Best for Vets.’
MCC was one of three Mississippi community colleges that made the list that comprised 73 community and or technical community colleges across the nation.
Each year, colleges across the nation are surveyed asking about their programs for veterans. The results are analyzed, along with public data about college and universities obtained from Education and Veterans Affairs departments, and turned into an official ranking.
With two strategic bases in Meridian, NAS Meridian, and Key Field, and the overwhelming support they give to the College, MCC is honored to serve our military, veterans, and dependents. “Our administration, faculty, and staff strive to give the best service possible and are committed to those who serve for us,” said Ashley Tanksley, MCC director of admissions.
