Quality Education at an Affordable Price
This is an exciting time for you and your student! We understand the important role you play in making college decisions. Hinds CC is an excellent college choice because we offer quality education at an affordable price that is close to home. Whether this is your first experience as the parent of a college student or you are a “seasoned” parent having sent other students to college, we are here to answer any questions you may have.
Come For A Visit
It only takes one visit to see what sets Hinds Community College apart from other colleges. When you schedule a campus visit, you'll be able to meet with a recruiter, get a personal tour of campus, and interact with other students.
Tours are available by appointment at all six Hinds locations. You can schedule your tour by phone or online.
How do I pay for college?
Over 85% of the Hinds CC’s student body receives financial aid in the form of grants, loans, work study, and scholarships including a tuition waiver for GED recipients’ first college class.
When should my child apply for admission?
How does my child choose a major?
Many college freshman are undecided about a major. Counselors at all 6 Hinds locations are here to advise students on majors and career choices. They can also assist them in taking our career assessment.
When does my child register for classes?
Once your child has met all college admission requirements, they can register at any time during our Open Registration period. No appointment is necessary to register. Simply visit any Hinds CC location during our Open Registration period.
If they are taking all online classes, they may submit an online advising request, and a counselor will advise and register them for classes via email.
Early registration is encouraged. Once a student is advised, they can register online for future semesters.
Registration occurs in three (3) periods during the year:
- Early April to late-May (for summer terms)
- Early April to early August (for fall term)
- Late October to early-January (for spring term)
Late registration occurs during the first few days of each semester. Students registering during late registration will incur additional fees. Students are encouraged to register early to avoid lines and filled classes. Before registering, you must complete all admission requirements.
What about housing?
Live close where the action is. Hinds Community College has men’s and women’s residence halls on both the Raymond and Utica campuses. With easy access to classes, learning resources, athletic events, and student activities, your child can take advantage of what Hinds CC has to offer and develop friendships that will last a lifetime. Early application is encouraged with a deadline of June 15th.
When is tuition due?
Tuition and fees are due by a specified deadline each semester. By the payment deadline, students must have paid in full, have entered into a payment plan, or have financial aid award on file sufficient to cover the entire balance.
Which campus should my child attend?
Hinds offers six great locations. If you live in one of the five counties that we serve, Hinds, Rankin, Warren, Claiborne and Copiah, you are no more than 30 miles from one our campuses.
If your child is looking for that full college experience, consider the Raymond and Utica campuses where the residence halls are located. Also, consider that some programs of study are offered at select campuses.
Don’t forget that we offer hundreds of online courses that can be taken from the convenience of your own home!
