Memphis & Shelby County Office of Reentry-Open Enrollment


The Memphis & Shelby County Office of Re-Entry is now accepting online applications for MSCOR University (formerly known as Second Chance), Winter 2016 Term.

Memphis & Shelby County Office of Reentry (MSCOR) is a collaborative effort to aid returning citizens with the tools necessary to ensure their successful community reentry with family, employment and education.  This collaborative consists of parole supervision from the Tennessee Department of Correction; case management from the Shelby County Division of Corrections; and soft skills training from the City of Memphis’ Second Chance Program.  In order to expand the services to all returning citizens regardless of the number and type of convictions, the Second Chance Program was enhanced to be called “MSCOR University.”

The classes and training offered through MSCOR University have proven to be beneficial in helping the student understand relationships and behaviors related to changing their status as a “labeled felon” to a respected and productive citizen.  With this newfound self-accountability, the student will be better equipped to project confidence when applying for and functioning as a productive and valued employment. Enrollees will be eligible to participate in all services offered by MSCOR – healthcare, GED certification, Forklift certification, transportation passes, job fairs, etc. Completion of MSCOR University will show their dedication and commitment to improving their lives living with a conviction.
