Distance Learning Orientation

All new undergraduate students are required to attend an orientation session.  For our distance learning students who do not live locally and will be taking distance education courses only, we have provided the following orientation information.

(If you will be taking any courses on campus, you must attend a general orientation session.)

As you begin, you may have many questions.  Orientation presents information concerning the important academic choices you will be making as well as services available to you as a student at Midwestern.  The faculty, staff, and students look forward to meeting you this semester. MSU is an exciting, growing university, and we are eager to help you get the best start.

Below are links of interest and information which will be vital to your educational journey at MSU.  Please take the time to review each of these sites, or at least bookmark this page so that you can refer to it later.
