2024-25 Academic Catalog



Admissions counselors visit high schools and community/junior colleges to assist students in making a smooth transition to Mississippi State University by answering questions about admissions, financial aid, scholarships, university student housing, academic programs, and student life. Prospective students and their families are encouraged to visit the campus, to meet students and professors, and to get an overall feel of MSU. To schedule a campus visit, go to www.admissions.msstate.edu.

All new students (freshmen and transfers) entering the university are encouraged to attend an orientation session. Orientation offers a variety of informational sessions for both parents and students alike. Students participate in interactive group sessions, meet with an Orientation Leader, register for classes, and get to know other incoming students, all while becoming familiar with services and opportunities available at the university. Orientation is a celebration that welcomes all new students and their parents into the Bulldog family!  Learn more at http://orientation.msstate.edu or email us at orientation@msstate.edu.
