It is required of all students enrolling in a MS State Online Education program to have Internet access and email capability.
All materials such as exercise assignments, study guides, and exams will be delivered via the Internet using Canvas. Canvas is a learning management system designed specifically for online learning.
Also, many courses require the purchase of textbooks. You may order these online from Barnes & Noble Bookstore. Some instructors may require additional materials to be purchased, always check your course syllabus.
Mississippi State University will soon launch Bulldog Bundle too, an all-encompassing textbook rental program for greater student success.
Through a partnership with Barnes & Noble, undergraduates will have access to all required textbooks, lab manuals, access codes and electronic book versions in a convenient bundle before the first day of class at savings of up to 50%.
Instead of purchasing materials a la carte, the cost now is applied to student accounts at the same time tuition is charged. The bookstore provides each student with a convenient package for physical books, and digital materials are automatically populated to students’ courses in Canvas.
If you do not see your textbook and it is within two weeks of the start of class, contact your advisor for assistance.
