Mississippi State University’s Starkville and MSU-Meridian campuses are being impacted by winter weather and will begin the spring semester Jan. 16 with remote operations.

Students can login to Canvas for course information from instructors.

Severe winter weather has made driving conditions hazardous in Central and North Mississippi and are expected to continue to impact transportation Tuesday [Jan. 16].

Employees who can work remotely should do so. Designated employees who are instructed by their supervisors are required to work in person on campus. MSU’s Operational Guidance may be viewed at https://www.emergency.msstate.edu/guidelines/op-guidance.

Faculty, staff and students are urged to use caution to ensure personal safety. The university will make an announcement Tuesday by 5 p.m. about the status of the institution for Wednesday, Jan. 17.
