The University of Southern Mississippi (USM) Gulf Park campus will host a college visit day exclusively for Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College (MGCCC) students on Thursday, Nov. 16 from 3-6:30 p.m.

MGCCC Transfer Visit Day provides a unique opportunity for MGCCC students to tour the state’s only beachfront campus, meet with admissions and financial aid representatives, visit with faculty and staff, and learn about degree programs and scholarship opportunities.

“We look forward to welcoming MGCCC students to the Gulf Park campus for our upcoming Transfer Visit Day, and showcasing what all we have to offer at Southern Miss,” said Dr. Rosaria Guastella, Associate Dean of Admissions. “We hope that many of our local MGCCC students who started their college career in the blue at MGCCC, will stay in the gold and transfer to Southern Miss to complete their undergraduate degree.”

Students will have the opportunity to apply for admission during the event. Admission application fees will also be waived for any current MGCCC students who apply for admission at the event.

Transfer Visit Day is an open house event. Participants may attend any portion of the event between the hours of 3 and 6:30 p.m. Current MGCCC students should RSVP online at
