Distance Learning

Southwest Mississippi Community College participates in the Mississippi Virtual Community College, a consortium of fourteen of Mississippi's community colleges. Through this consortium, we are able to offer our students additional course options.

To schedule an online class, you must first complete the admissions process. Once the admissions process is complete, you may pre-schedule your online classes.

Your next step is to visit the MSVCC home page and review the available courses under Course Offerings.

It is the responsibility of the student to obtain textbooks for an online class. The information describing the textbook can be found on your Student Profile. There are many online bookstores that can provide you with the needed texts. If you would prefer, the SMCC bookstore can order your book for you. You will need to print your Student Profile to take to the bookstore. A deposit or a charge against your financial aid is required before the text will be ordered.

Make sure that you login to your course the first week of classes, even if you do not have your textbook yet. Instructors will drop students for non-attendance. You will be required to take at least one proctored test for each online class.
