Finish your degree.
C2C can help.

Do you have some college credits but no degree?

Complete 2 Compete (C2C) helps people like you go back to college and graduate.

Life happens, and we can’t always finish college  on our first attempt. C2C helps adults who left college at least 2 years ago to go back to a Mississippi community college or public university and FINISH their degree.

Can you relate?

• Has it been a few years since you were last in college?

• Do you pass up job opportunities because they require a degree?

• Are you afraid that you would have to “start over” if you went back to college?

• Does it feel embarrassing to tell people that you don’t have a degree?

• Would it be a financial burden to pay for college?

• Is it hard to talk with your kids about college when you haven’t finished yet?

• Do you think about finishing your degree, but feel clueless about where to start?

If any of these are true, C2C may be a good fit for you!
