MSU offers online high school credit
STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Mississippi State University is offering online high school courses for credit, giving a helping hand to students trying to get ahead or catch up on graduation requirements.
Health, economics, geometry, Mississippi studies, U.S. government, U.S. history, advanced world geography and two English classes are available through the MSU Center for Continuing Education. Costs are $150 for a half credit and $300 for a full credit.
Approved by the Mississippi Department of Education, these courses were developed and are taught by licensed Mississippi teachers. Students have one year from the date of enrollment to complete the coursework and must have approval from their high schools and parents or guardians.
Although the format is an online class, students will interact with teachers through email and discussion boards. All tests must be taken in an approved testing facility and officially proctored. Upon completion of online courses, the students’ grades will be sent to their home schools for credit. Completion of these courses does not earn the student any MSU college or continuing education credits.
