Students who have attended other accredited institutions of higher learning may be admitted to the college by submitting:
- A completed Northeast Mississippi Community College application for admission.
- Official transcripts from all colleges and/or universities attended. Credits will be accepted from other regionally accredited colleges/universities. Students who are academically suspended from a former college or university must seek admission through the admissions appeal process.
- A transcript proving graduation from an approved and/or accredited high school or private academy, completion of an approved home school program or documentation of a passing score on the General Educational Development (GED) test. Students who have completed a minimum of 12 semester hours of credit with a 2.0 or higher grade point average (measured on a 4.0 scale) from a single college or university are exempt from this requirement.
- Scores on the American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). (If the student has earned more than 12 semester hours of credit at a previous institution, this requirement may not apply.) The College may require scores on the Accuplacer exam for placement purposes.
A maximum of 45 semester hours of transfer credit may be applied toward a degree program.
