Complete 2 Compete

One Degree Better

Complete to Compete is a statewide program focused on encouraging Mississippi adults who have completed some college, but no degree, to return to college and complete the requirements necessary to earn their degrees.

Mississippi Public Universities, the Mississippi Community College Board and the Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges are partners in the effort to identify target groups, implement adult learner services and re-engage adult students to help them complete their degrees.

C2C is designed for any adult learner that has some coursework completed at a Mississippi public institution is at least 21 years of age, who has been out of college at least 24 consecutive months and has not completed a postsecondary degree.

C2C makes it easy for adults to review prior credits earned and matches them with an institution that provides the best pathway for obtaining a degree. C2C links adults to a C2C Coach, who works to maximize the application of earned credits toward a degree. For adults who have enough credits for an associate or bachelor’s degree, that degree is awarded. For those just short of a degree, a C2C Coach works to identify the best pathway that meets their goals

C2C is designed for that Mississippi adult learner who has been out of college at least 24 consecutive months and is motivated to take the first steps toward completing their degree. Adult learners will be able to finish their degree with a seamless process eliminating the typical barriers of enrollment.
