Mississippians now have a new option to earn their High School Equivalency (HSE) Diploma.

On Thursday, the Mississippi Community College Board (MCCB) announced that high school dropouts who live in the Magnolia State can now take advantage of a program called TotalTranscript.

TotalTranscript, offered by DiplomaSender, allows those who have previously taken portions of the GED, HiSET, or TASC to combine test scores in order to attain an HSE Diploma. Beforehand, students were required to take and pass the entire battery of individual tests in order to earn an HSE Diploma.

“Across the state, there are more than 300,000 Mississippians without a high school diploma, and oftentimes, these individuals are not able to access postsecondary educational opportunities or secure gainful employment,” MCCB Interim Executive Director Dr. Kell Smith said. “TotalTranscript is a great option for those who may have begun the process of earning an HSE Diploma but have not yet been able to finish the process. A high school diploma opens countless doors throughout life, and I am excited about this new option.”
