The Mississippi State Board of Contractors has reciprocal agreements with Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Tennessee, and South Carolina. If you have held an unlimited license in one of these states for three consecutive years, it can waive your trade.  However the Mississippi Law and Business Management exam is mandatory.  Reciprocity does not waive any of the application requirements or the Board review.
