Classes under way at Hinds CC’s Rankin Campus

Fall classes at Hinds Community College got under way on Aug. 14, including at the Rankin Campus in Pearl.

Late registration continues throughout the week until Friday, Aug. 18.

The Rankin Campus added an Honors program last fall. A new addition for fall 2017 is the college-level culinary arts program, which is also at Hinds’ Jackson Campus-Academic/Technical Center, Utica and Vicksburg campuses.

Hinds Community College is celebrating its 100th year of Community Inspired Service in 2017. Hinds opened in September 1917 first as an agricultural high school and admitted college students for the first time in 1922, with the first class graduating in 1927. In 1982 Hinds Junior College and Utica Junior College merged, creating the Hinds Community College District. Today, as Mississippi’s largest community college, Hinds Community College is a comprehensive institution with six locations. Hinds offers quality, affordable educational opportunities with academic programs of study leading to seamless university transfer and career and technical programs teaching job-ready skills.
