Anchor Points Co-Advising

What is Anchor Points?

Anchor Points is a collaborative program between Mississippi University for Women and select local two year colleges listed below. We support a smooth transition for students transferring to The W who have earned an Associate in Arts, Associate in Science, or an Associate of Applied Science degree from one of our participating schools.

Anchor Points students will work with an MUW transfer advisor who, along with their college counselor, will help them develop a sound academic plan, find resources to support academic success and become familiar with The W's campus and resources, all while still working toward their Associate Degree.

Who can participate?

Students entering or currently enrolled at Copiah-Lincoln Community College, Itawamba Community College, or Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College can join.

If you applied as an entering student to The W and are eligible for Anchor Points, you will be sent additional information about the program.

What is required?

We require that students in the program meet with The W's transfer student navigator at least once each semester.

The semester before you intend to enroll at The W, be sure to update or fill out a new W application for admission.
