  • Beginnings: East Mississippi Community College established a branch location in Macon nearly 30 years ago. In the early days, two instructors offered classes in English and history at the Noxubee County Vocational Center.
  • Classes: Today, EMCC instructors teach core classes in the evening at Noxubee County High School. Adult Basic Education classes are offered at the Noxubee County Public Library two days a week. A GED Fast-Track class meets Monday through Thursday at the James Arthur Hensleigh Training Center, a portable classroom behind the courthouse in downtown Macon. EMCC’s Workforce Services Division teaches welding near the Civic Center on Highway 45, in a lab provided by the Appalachian Regional Commission, and computer courses at the Hensleigh Center.
  • Accreditation: EMCC is fully accredited by the Southern Association of College and Schools. This means your academic classes will transfer to any senior college of your choice with whom EMCC maintains an articulation agreement. EMCC is articulated with all senior colleges in the state of Mississippi.
  • Dual Enrollment: EMCC launched a district-wide pilot program in the 2011-12 school year to introduce tuition-free online dual enrollment classes. Dual enrollment allows qualified students to earn college credit before they graduate from high school, and Noxubee County students are taking part. The pilot resulted in a 126 percent increase in dual enrollment.
  • Goal: East Mississippi Community College hopes to continue to increase the number and variety of classes offered in Macon, working toward the day when students can graduate from EMCC by taking classes only at the Macon extension.
