UM High School Courses for Correspondence
The UMHS offers fully accredited classes to students looking to earn credits needed for high school graduation requirements. Students who take classes through the program will receive a numerical grade upon successful completion of the course that can be applied toward graduation requirements at their local high school.
The UMHS courses listed below are approved by the Mississippi Commission on School Accreditation through the Mississippi State Department of Education.
All students are held to the policies and standards of the UMHS as outlined in the UMHS Student Handbook.
The UMHS is not responsible for determining if pre-requisites have been met prior to taking a course. It is the student's responsibility to work with their high school counselor prior to enrollment to determine if he/she is eligible to earn credit for a course. No refunds will be issued outside of the refund policy due to prerequisites not being met prior to enrollment.
All students should follow the outlined UMHS proctor policy as outlined under the Policies tab.
Minimum completion period
A student may not complete a course in fewer than four weeks for a half unit course and six weeks for a full unit course from the date the first written work is received at the University of Mississippi High School without advance permission from the administration.
A final numerical grade will be sent to the school upon completion of the course and schools will assign the equivalent letter grade based on their own grading scale.
Upon completion of a course, students should complete a Grade Report Request Form for the transcript to be mailed to the school. Schools will only receive official documentation of the student’s final grade after the course is completed. Schools will not be updated on a student’s status in the class, unless requested by the student in writing. Parents will receive a progress report monthly via email.

The fee for a 1 unit course is $375. The fee for a ½ unit course is $250. The fee for a 1 unit AP course is $425. The fee for a ½ unit AP course is $300.
Courses for Seniors
All courses needed to meet graduation requirements for the current school year MUST be completed by two weeks prior to the school’s deadline for graduation. This deadline ensures all documentation arrives at the school in time for graduation. This deadline does not apply if the student is not graduating during the current school year.
