Skill UP Mississippi is an initiative of the Office of Adult Education at the Mississippi Community College Board. Through various programs such as Smart Start and High School Equivalency (HSE), Skill UP Mississippi helps people launch careers, strengthens the state workforce, and creates an opportunity for economic development.
The Office of Adult Education is closely monitoring news and information related to the COVID-19 pandemic. While our priority is for programs to take all the necessary and recommended precautions to protect students, faculty, and staff, we know each area and program are different. To find out how your local program is serving the residents in their communities, please visit the Mississippi Community College Board’s COVID-19 update page for more information.
