Undergraduate Enrollment

Now that you are admitted to Mississippi State University-Meridian, it’s time to make it official and register for classes!

At MSU Meridian, orientation sessions are replaced with one-on-one meetings with dedicated Academic Advisors.  We know every student is different and that’s why we think it’s important to help you create a schedule that meets both your academic and personal needs.  Not only will you register for classes, but we will also take time and discuss financial aid, options for paying your bill, textbooks, class locations and how you can get involved with MSU student organizations!  


When can I schedule a meeting with my advisor?

Beginning April 1 for summer and fall applicants.

Beginning November 1 for spring applicants.


What should I bring to my advising meeting?

  • Official transcripts from all colleges attended
