Approximately three weeks before the semester begins, the Registrar's Office enrolls the student in the class and assigns them a student number (PID) and 4 digit passcode (PAN). These are sent to the student in two separate emails using the email address listed in ExpanSIS. The student must use the PID and PAN to activate their MSU email address. After 24-48 hours, the student can access the class through the course management system. The course information pages are sent multiple times to any and all e-mail addresses listed for the student in ExpanSIS.
