Campus Resources

Students receive the Conduct Code upon arrival at MSU.  The Code explains how “IT” works at MSU – from instructors responsibilities related to grading to the definition of academic misconduct.  Refer to the Code so you know your rights and responsibilities while a member of the MSU community.
