Complete2Compete - Earn Your Degree

Oct 11, 2017

Complete2Compete Website


Complete 2 Compete (C2C) is a statewide initiative designed to help Mississippi adults who have earned college credit – but do not have a degree – better their lives by completing a degree program. Created by the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning and the Mississippi Community College Board, the C2C program combines the resources of our state’s 15 community colleges and eight public universities.


You're not alone:

Thousands of adult learners may already have enough credits to receive an associate or bachelor’s degree. In fact, data collected during the past 15 years shows:

32,000 adult Mississippians may have earned enough college credits but were not awarded a postsecondary degree

127,000 adult Mississippians are within a few courses of finishing a degree


How C2C works

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.


Who qualifies

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.
