Northwest Mississippi Community College was established as a two-year public community college in 1928. Originally known as Tate County Agricultural High School, the school changed dramatically as history unfolded. Military student influence was strong during World War II, which resulted in the addition of accelerated degree programs and eventually, online degree options. The community college currently enrolls more than 6,800 students in its academic programs. More than 16 majors can be completed entirely online through Northwest Mississippi Community College and many other individual courses can be completed in the same format to supplement traditional degree programs.

Programs Offered

Classes are conducted through the online learning platform called Blackboard. By logging in to their courses, students can view class announcements and homework assignments, communicate with classmates and instructors, and participate in tests and quizzes remotely. Northwest Mississippi Community College offers complete degrees online in popular areas of study, including accountancy, psychology, business administration, criminal justice, communications, and much more. The flexibility provided by the format of the online courses allows busy working adults and other distance learners to achieve their academic goals on a schedule that fits their needs. Although the residency requirement is eliminated, students receive the same academic program as traditional programs — equally as challenging and valuable. All programs are accredited under the school’s accreditation.


Northwest Mississippi Community College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to grant associate degrees. Six programs received specialized accreditation from other organizations as well.


Northwest Mississippi Community College has an open door admissions policy provided applicants follow the correct steps to apply for admission. Along with a completed application for admission, students must supply official transcripts from an accredited high school including graduation date and a signature of school official.
