Registration for summer classes at Northwest Mississippi Community College is now open, along with Fall 2021 priority registration for current students.
Those interested in registering for full term summer session or the first Mini-Term summer session of 2021 have until May 28 to priority register, with the final registration deadline for all students as June 2. The deadline to register for the college’s second Mini-Term summer session is July 7. Additionally, priority registration for the Fall 2021 semester is now open for students
who are currently enrolled with the college. The deadline to register for fall classes is August 17.
Students enrolling in summer or fall classes with the college can expect a pre-COVID experience. In keeping with the college’s new “Forward Together” initiative, traditional face-to-face instruction will resume, with a small online component. Additionally, masks and social distancing will now be voluntary in most areas of the campus, though face coverings will still be required this summer in classrooms or other instructional areas where social distancing is
difficult to maintain.
In the Fall 2021 semester, most academic classes will also begin operating on a new four-day schedule, with two 50-minute classes, either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday. The campus, however, will remain open five days a week, with all campus services available for students. Career-Technical and Health Sciences classes will meet their pre-COVID times, on a four- or five-day schedule, depending on the specific program.
This fall will also see the opening of Calhoun Hall, Northwest’s newest residence hall, the opening of the first phase of the Panola Concourse in Batesville, the introduction of the college’s Coding Technology program at technology hub Everest in Water Valley, and the kickoff
of Northwest’s new, long-awaited Physical Therapist Assistant program, which begins in August.
On-campus orientation for the fall semester will be held on July 13 and July 22.

July 28-29. The deadline to withdraw is July 16 for full term classes and June 17 for term one classes. Classes for the summer’s second Mini-Term begin on July 6, with final exams set for July 29-30.
