Top Hat Software

With Top Hat software, students use their own laptop or mobile device to answer quizzes, reply to polls, and respond to class simulations.

Instructor Registration

Top Hat is available at no cost to instructors, but does require registration and creation of an account at the MSU Top Hat portal.

Top Hat can also be synchronized with MSU D2L grades and rosters.

Student Registration

Students will need to purchase a Top Hat subscription for use within classes as part of the course materials. They should use their MSU email address and a password different from their NetID password.

First they need to create an account at the Top Hat home page. Then they need to log in and select one of the following subscriptions: semester ($24), year ($36), or five year ($72). Students pay one fee for access to unlimited courses during that time period.
