Emergency Child Care

Have you had to miss days from work or school because your child care provider was unavailable?

Each MSU employee or student is eligible to use this service five days each year for each child in the family (on an academic year basis, fall semester though the end of the following summer semester). The service is free of charge.

A child must be free of communicable disease and capable of participating in regularly planned activities.
