Student Counseling Services

Oktibbeha County Hospital
Longest Student Health Center
Students can meet with a confidential health care provider.
Dean of Students Office
Staff can assist a student in filing formal complaints or, if the student does not want to file a formal complaint, the staff can work with the student to address concerns over housing, class assignments or schedules, leaves of absence, withdrawal or other academic concerns. The office staff can also assist the student in notifying MSU Police or local law enforcement, if the student so requests.
MSU Police Department
Contacting MSU Police does not mean a student must pursue criminal charges. MSU Police can advise students of their options, help preserve evidence while they consider options, and assist students in safety planning.
