Dropout Recovery

The Hinds Community College Adult Education department's mission is to increase the educational attainment level of working-age Mississippians without a high school diploma, while also increasing their employability skills by assisting them in transitioning into college-level programs.  The key areas are Adult Basic Education (ABE) and General Educational Development (GED) Testing Services.

We are committed to addressing both the educational and social needs of non-traditional students.
