High school students in the Magnolia State can take advantage of online courses offered through Mississippi State’s Center for Continuing Education to accelerate progress toward graduation, catch up with classes they need, take a course not available at their school or simply enjoy a convenient online learning option.
The MSU High School Online program offers open enrollment so Mississippi public, private and homeschool students can register at any time to begin earning Carnegie credits toward graduation requirements. Complete details are available at http://ce.extension.msstate.edu/programs/high-school-online.
All courses are approved by the Mississippi Department of Education and developed and taught by licensed Mississippi teachers. Students interested in enrolling should consult with their high-school counselor or principal to ensure their school will accept the courses and complete a High School Online Course Request Form.
Amber Shultice, continuing education program coordinator, said the convenient online courses are designed to help students who plan to graduate early, lack courses they need, have transferred from out of state or have a scheduling conflict.
Students not currently enrolled in high school who are looking to earn their high-school diploma can enroll in one of ten Career Online High School Programs available to students over the age of 16 who have successfully completed the 8th grade at an accredited school.
