grads 2018

Mountain Empire Community College is piloting a new text message service to help students complete their degrees with assistance from the University of Virginia. 

Throughout the semester, participating students will receive text messages from MECC Dean of Student Services Lelia Bradshaw to help students choose courses that help them complete their program of study, maximize how much financial aid they receive if they apply, and connect to helpful campus resources. Lelia will respond individually to questions and messages she receives from students. This is a great opportunity to get personalized advising at MECC from the convenience of your phone!

MECC Mobile Support is a pilot program. If successful, it will grow to serve more students in future terms.
