Every student at MSU-Meridian is assigned an academic advisor within his or her designated division. A student who has selected a specific major will find the names of the advisors for that major listed under the name of the department or the major subject in the appropriate division section of this website.

Before registering for any semester, each student is responsible for consulting his or her advisor to secure approval for a specific schedule of courses. With the signed schedule, the student is then entered into his/her classes by an advisor or can register individually on the web. A period for schedule planning and registration for the following semester is provided near the end of each regular term; registration for the summer school terms also may be accomplished in the spring registration period. Late registration and walk-in registration is conducted immediately prior to the beginning of classes.

A student who for any reason has been unable to register during these scheduled registration periods still may do so up to the last day for registration and adding courses as listed in the Academic Calendar but may find the choices of courses and sections limited.
