Mississippi Highway 15 (MS 15) is a state highway in Mississippi. At over 328 miles (528 km), it is the longest highway in the Mississippi Highway System. It begins at a junction with U.S. Route 90 in Biloxi and runs northward to the Mississippi/Tennessee state line near Walnut. It serves a total of 15 counties (Harrison, Stone, Perry, Jones, Jasper, Newton, Neshoba, Winston, Choctaw, Webster, Oktibbeha, Chickasaw, Pontotoc, Union, and Tippah). MS 15 is divided into two sections due to a large gap between Stone County and Perry County. The southern section ends at a junction with MS 26, and the northern section begins at a junction with US 98 in Perry County.

Water flowing over Old Hwy 67 and Mississippi Highway 15 near their intersection in Harrison County on September 29, 1998 during the September 1998 flooding caused on the Tchoutacabouffa River by Hurricane Georges.
