C2C and COVID-19

C2C is committed to providing you with the support needed to complete your education. We understand that lingering effects of the pandemic present challenges, and we are here to help. We encourage you to visit our FAQ page to learn more about the ways we are working for you.

COMPLETE 2 COMPETE (C2C)

The C2C program works within each Mississippi community college and public university. The program's mission is to increase the number of Mississippi adults with a degree or credentials of value.

To accomplish our mission we offer academic and financial support services to help adult learners who have earned college credits—but not a degree*—return and finish what they started.

The C2C program also provides returning adults one-on-one coaching support from application through graduation. Dedicated coaches are on staff at each of Mississippi’s eight public universities, 15 public community colleges, and the medical center.

C2C Grant Receives $1.3 million Boost

In September 2021, the C2C program received $1.3 million from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to fund Mississippi’s Complete 2 Compete (C2C) Tuition Assistance Grant through 2022. This adds to the funding received from the Mississippi Department of Human Services (MDHS).

Thanks to these combined awards the C2C Grant will now be able to support even more qualifying Mississippians in returning to complete their college degree. C2C can now award grants to applicants with greater household incomes. Additionally, grant awards can now be used to help qualifying students pay prior college debt owed to participating institutions.

Note: C2C Grant funds are disturbed to eligible applicants on a first-come, first-served basis and subject to funding availability.
