MSU Required Safety & Secuirty Information

NOTE: Answering “Yes” to any of these questions will not automatically prevent admission, but you will be asked by the university to provide additional information. This information will be reviewed by a campus committee to ensure campus safety. Any falsification or omission of data may result in a denial of admission or dismissal.

There is a NO cell phone policy for this course, when we are in the lab we will limit the use of cell phone to the afternoon of day 2 to act as a calculator. During the remainder of the course due to chemicals and liquids, cellphones must be put away in bags and pockets until the course finishes for the day.
