Tips for a Successful Registration Experience

  • If you do not remember your password or login, you may click Forgot your username or password? under the LOGIN button to retrieve it via text message or email. (Missouri State does not keep this information)
  • Returning students (those who enrolled in the Fall 2018 semester)
    •  Do not need to complete an application. You only need to choose your course(s) for spring registration.
    •  Students who registered for a year-long course in the fall, do not need to re-register for that same course for the Spring.
  • New students (completing for the first time)
    • Be sure to choose courses for registration before logging out. If you do not, you have not requested registration and will not be in the course.
  • Confirm the following:
    • Student name is correct on the account (NOT YOUR PARENT’s NAME)
    • Parent email is provided for consent for the course. Your registration will not move forward without parent consent
    • Date of birth is correct – especially the year
    • Mailing address is current and correct
  • Providing incorrect information will result in delay/denial of registration.
  • Selecting a course does not guarantee enrollment. The University will review your request and approve or deny your enrollment.
