Greetings from Academic Advising!

We hope that you are excited to start your first course. The first day of login is quickly approaching! Are you ready? Here are a couple of things that you will want to do prior to the first day of class:


• Are your payment arrangements in place? Payment arrangements needs to be in place two weeks before the term begins and the payment options are available.

• Have you ordered your textbooks? Textbooks for online courses can be ordered at MBS Direct. You will need to know your student schedule which can be accessed through Connections.

• Do you have full access to Connections? If not, simply contact the IT Service Desk. More information about Connections is found here.

• Are you comfortable with the online format? Check out the Online Course Tour from the Online Learning Center, attend the webinars and training.

If you have any questions, feel free to connect with your Academic Advisor. Appointments can be scheduled by calling 314-968-6972.
