Co-Lin opened in the fall of 1915 first as an agricultural high school and admitted college students for the first time in 1928. Additional supporting counties were added including Simpson (1934), Franklin (1948), Lawrence (1965), Jefferson (1967), and Adams (1971). A facility located in Natchez had its early beginnings in 1972 with legislative action establishing it as a campus in 1975. A similar facility in Simpson County had its beginnings in 1997, and was built on 16th section land in Mendenhall in 2005. In 1988, the board renamed the college Copiah-Lincoln Community College in recognition of the broad mission of the institution. Today, Co-Lin is a comprehensive institution offering quality, affordable educational opportunities with academic programs of study leading to seamless university transfer and career and technical programs teaching job-ready skills.
