Web Registration

You may select the LioNet icon from the MSSU homepage or go to http:// lionet.mssu.edu and choose “Registration Tools” from the Quick Links. Web Registration is available only to currently enrolled students with 30 or more hours. Your log-on ID and password will be required. Students on academic probation must contact their Advisor.

Web Registration allows you to register yourself for courses that are open if you have met the prerequisites and there is no time conflict with your other courses.

Before you can Web Register:

  • You must contact your Advisor and your Advisor must issue a new registration PIN for each term.
  • Any holds for academic or financial reasons must be cleared.
  • Your assigned beginning enrollment date and time must be met.
  • See the Priority Registration schedule below.
  • After the first week of the term, students will not be permitted to make changes to their schedule through LioNet.

You also have the option to enroll in person through your Advisor on or after your assigned date. If you have problems using Web Registration, please see your Advisor.
