Transfer and Former Students Orientation

student studying pictureWelcome to MSSU! We have a Transfer/Former Southern Welcome set for April16 for the spring semester and several sessions to choose from for the fall semester.
The orientation program is designed to:

  • provide information about MSSU
  • to enroll students for the coming semester
  • to provide a forum to have student questions and concerns addressed

If you attend this program, you will hear from Financial Aid counselors, the Bursar's office, the Academic Records Specialist, and will be enrolled by academic advisor in your declared major.
At the end of the day, you will have processed your picture ID and parking permits, received a copy of your schedule and bill, so you can start planning for your classes, make any necessary payment arrangements, and learn about other services available for your success.
