3 easy steps

step 1 - apply

apply for general admission to hinds community college for the spring 2021 semester, if you have not done so already.

Step 2 - Submit Transcripts & Scores

first-time college students

submit your official high school transcript and act scores. if you have not had the act, take the accuplacer at any hinds campus. if you are still in high school, submit your final transcript after your graduation. if you received a high school equivalency (hse) diploma, request your official hse diploma transcript at www.diplomasender.com.

college-transfer students

submit the official college transcript from the most recent college you attended showing the completion of at least three credit hours in both english and math. if you submit an in-progress transcript, remember to submit another official college transcript after your grades are posted this semester. if you have not completed at least three credit hours of both english and math, then you must also submit your official act scores or take the accuplacer.

step 3 - register for classes

new students

all new hinds students or returning students who have not attended hinds for at least one semester must be advised by a counselor before registering for classes. simply visit any hinds location during business hours to see a counselor or request remote advising.

current students

current students (excluding dual enrolled students) may register for classes in my.hinds. however, if you need advising or help with your program of study, we invite you to visit with a counselor.

“it’s a big moment when a student returns to me after they leave and say, ‘miss cockrell, i can’t believe it. this same situation happened and i knew how to take care of my patient.’ they got that experience here in the simulation center. that’s big to know we’re producing competent healthcare providers in a safe environment who know how to take care of patients.”

“when you look at touching students’ lives, i take pride in helping students even in small ways…you also give them the opportunity to feel that hope in their lives. it sounds cheesy, but when you see it happen in front of you, it’s hard to deny it. i feel it makes me a better teacher.”

it gives me gratitude to help students in a way that instructors have helped me in my own life. i enjoy giving them opportunities that go beyond just the normal classroom.

at hinds, i’ve had several students go on and play major roles in the film industry in mississippi. for me, that brings a great sense of joy. i feel like i’m a happy father.
