Online Orientation

Complete by move-in day

Welcome to orientation! As a way to prepare new students for the MSA on-campus experience, we’ve provided a quick orientation session for students to complete online at individual pace. This reduces the amount of information received during the first few days of the new school year.

Incoming MSA juniors and MSA rising seniors will need to complete online orientation prior to move-in day. This course will be facilitated in Moodle, the school’s online learning management system.

Getting Started

When accepted students commit to attending Mississippi School of the Arts, they will attend New Student Day and receive pertinent information. This will include account credentials used to login to and complete the online orientation course in Moodle.

The online orientation course is divided into specific modules which includes the following:

  • General Information
  • Safety Procedures
  • Academics & Discipline
  • Rules and Regulations
  • Plagiarism and Assessment
  • Technology Resources
  • Cyberbullying and Assessment

MSA administration will check your status of student orientation during move-in day registration. Students who have not completed orientation will be required to complete under supervision.
