Individuals at least 18 years of age who did not earn a high school diploma are eligible to test for a Mississippi State High School Equivalency (HSE) diploma without attending classes. Students under the age of 18 must make prior contact with Data Manager/Assessment Specialist, Danielle White at 601-643-8655.
