âDuring the pandemic and the converted online courses, we haven’t had this face-to-face opportunity to tell our students what we have to offer. The business office is normally represented at directions, Mustang Rally, this type of event. We missed out on those opportunities, probably with the last, maybe two freshman classes coming up, âsaid Perry Griner, director of student business services. âMore and more people started sending checks in the mail and they didn’t realize that we had this whole system (Touchnet) that you could use at your desk without having to stand in line. “
Online options benefit not only students but departments as well. Marketplace offers departments space for online payments / donations for products like camp registrations, test fees, fundraising events, and more.
âMustang Marketplace is available for all departments. that is, MSU Athletics uses it for summer camp registrations, the testing department to pay for testing fees, and the nursing department uses it to pay for insurance and other products. said Griner. âDonations to MSU Texas can be made using Marketplace. “

This is the time of year when students pre-register and some students may owe for previous semesters and have deductions from their accounts.
