Welcome From Dr. Allen

Welcome to the Northeast Mississippi Community College web-site. This site is designed to help you explore the many learning opportunities offered by one of the most successful community colleges in Mississippi.

The College was created in 1948 to serve the needs of the people in the northeastern corner of Mississippi. The official service area of the College is Alcorn, Prentiss, Tippah, Tishomingo and Union counties. Beyond its official scope, the College enrolls students from Tennessee, Alabama, many other states, and counties. Because we offer quality education in a convenient, affordable, and flexible format, our enrollment has grown in excess of 3,200.

Northeast is a comprehensive community college with transfer, career, and technical courses in day, evening, weekend, and on-line formats. We support our students with a full array of financial aid, counseling, placement, and housing services. Our instructors are well-trained and seasoned professionals who invest their energy into the success of their students. In addition to our regular programs, Mississippi State University and the University of Mississippi offer upper-division classes on the Booneville campus. Classes may also be taken off-campus at the New Albany, Tishomingo, and Corinth sites.

Northeast has earned accreditation through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Many of the programs offered by the College are individually accredited by agencies with specific program expertise. Quality programs, caring professionals, and modern facilities are all components of the recipe of success for the College.

Northeast is accredited by the Commission of Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. We offer transfer programs that lead to university study, technical and vocational programs and on-site industry training. These opportunities are provided in a caring atmosphere led by excellent teachers who work for student success both in the classroom and in students' future careers.

I invite you to review this web-site as you make your own educational plans. Northeast Mississippi Community College has helped thousands of people to achieve their dreams. Let us help you to build your future.
