There are no required prerequisites for any courses in the MSIR curriculum, so students have great flexibility in planning out their course of study. If you are taking in-class courses at a campus or teaching site, the sequence of courses will be heavily influenced by the schedule of local course offerings. Check the campus' or site's long term schedule and consult with local faculty and staff.
TROY Online students have considerable flexibility in scheduling their courses. However, we advise students to consider the following guidelines:
Unless you are at a campus with an on-site bookstore, textbooks are available through the Troy University Virtual Bookstore which is run by MBS Direct. The virtual bookstore has a listing of courses organized by location and term. You select the course for which you are enrolled and the site lists the books required for the courses. Go to the TROY Online How to Order Textbooks page to begin the ordering process
All Troy courses use the Blackboard learning management system to some extent. In class instructors use Blackboard as a means of communicating and making resources available to students outside of class. TROY Online instructors use Blackboard as the primary means of instruction. Therefore, it is important that all students login to Blackboard at the beginning of the term to familiarize themselves with what the instructor has made available.

For more information about using Blackboard, go to TROY Online's Blackboard info page. Instructions for logging in to Blackboard are also included in the First Time Student Video that can be accessed from the Blackboard login page.Note: Blackboard courses are made available to students at the beginning of the term and will not show up in your Blackboard account until then even if you are registered for the course. All TROY Online courses are made available the Friday before the term begins.
