Preregistration Steps:

After you have received your notice that you have been accepted, you will need to register for classes. If you need academic advising or transcript evaluation in order to decide which courses to take, contact Cindy Smith.

Check out our listing of Available Courses and write down the course symbol (i.e. MGT) and number (i.e. 8112) you want to take, as well as the appropriate section number.

Register online:

Classified MSIS students can register online (or drop classes) at Banner Web by following these instructions:

  • Access the mySTATE Portal.
  • Enter your NetID and NetPassword.
    • Current students will use the same NetID and NetPassword used to access previous courses.
    • 1st time users will need to set up a password by selecting Trouble Logging In under the Need Help menu and select "Set Your Initial Password".
    • If you forgot your password, select Trouble Logging In under the Need Help menu and select "Forgot Your Password".
