Before you enroll in you first course(s), please take the time to do the following:

  • Before you can enroll in classes you must first accept your admission through the Slate application portal in order to obtain your Personal Access Number (PAN), which allows you access MSU resources.

  • All MSU students receive an MSU e-mail account. This account is used for all correspondence pertaining to university business and the MPH program.
  • Log in to the Student Information System (SIS) at student.msu.edu and familiarize yourself with the tools and resources provided. This is where you will start the process to enroll in classes, pay your bill, confirm your attendance, change an address, and view your account.
