Requirements for Admission
Implementation of specific admission policies is the responsibility of the administration and faculty of the institution. Northwest Mississippi Community College ascribes to an “open admissions” policy consistent with all appertaining laws. The College embraces the philosophy that students be provided the opportunities for learning experiences, e.g., developmental courses, counseling, tutorial assistance,etc., that will help the individual students succeed in achieving their educational goals.
