Accessing Mayville State University Online Classes

 

Give your Mayville State email and Moodle login access a test run at least one week prior to the start of classes. Be sure you have the necessary technology to complete your online classes by using the list of requirements found here: http://www.mayvillestate.edu/msu-online/msu-online/getting-started/.  

Moodle is Mayville State’s course management system, and where you will find the materials for your classes.  Classes will not be available in Moodle until the first day of class. To ensure you are registered for the correct classes, please login and refer to your official class roster in Campus Connection.  If you have a problem accessing your courses after these dates or have any other technical questions, please contact Sheena Moe, Moodle Support Specialist, at 1-800-437-4104, ext. 34645.

 Please also take some time to practice Moodle and learn about being a Mayville State University Distance Student in the Distance Student Orientation course located within Moodle (MASU DSO--Distance Student Orientation).  This optional orientation is available beginning Monday, May 15, and will appear in your list of Moodle courses.  It is not required and there is no cost associated with the Distance Student Orientation.  However, I encourage you to take some time to work through the orientation. 

Please be sure to check your Mayville State University email account at least three times per week.  All official communication from university departments (financial aid, business office, etc.) and instructors goes to your MSU email.
