What is HSR?


Hail State Rewards is the FREE student program that rewards attendance at MSU events. 

Students earn Hail State Rewards points by attending events and using one of our three check-in methods upon arrival. 

As students attend more and more events, their loyalty point number will increase. Those points can then be used in our online PRIZE STORE to redeem them for a variety of great prizes. Prizes range from a Mississippi State t-shirt or other MSU apparel, to an all-access behind-the-scenes tour of MSU athletic facilities. Points can begin being earned during a student's freshman year and can be earned continuously until graduation. 

The biggest advantage for students of HSR is that it allows them to begin earning points towards Bulldog Club priority. Upon graduation, a set percentage of Hail State Rewards points roll-over to activate an alumni membership in the Bulldog Club. The Bulldog Club not only helps grow the Bulldog family through private donations, but determines priority in season ticket sales and parking passes for alumni. Following a student's first year after graduation, they will be able to take advantage of exclusive season ticket offers available only to former HSR members. 


Becoming a member is easy. Every student who attends Mississippi State University can be a member of Hail State Rewards, you simply activate your membership to start tracking your points. Activation is free. There are two ways to activate your membership: 

  • Attend a Hail State Rewards event and swipe your student ID on the scanning kiosk, click “agree."
  • Go to the sign up page and enter your NetID and 9-Digit MSU ID number to activate online.

 You will receive an email after you activate your membership with other details about the program.


Points are awarded for students who attend a variety of on-campus events, including MSU athletic events and a variety of other designated HSR events. Point values for each events varies, beginning at 100 points and ranging up to 300 points. 

Students earn HSR points simply by attending events at Mississippi State and using one of the easy redemption methods: 

NOTE: If your student ID is scanned to enter the event, that’s it – you will automatically earn your points for attending. But, make sure you have the "Hail State Rewards" iOS or Android app downloaded and your Bluetooth turned on, so you can earn extra points for staying for the entire event. 

If it's an event where your student ID card is not swiped as you enter, you have three simple ways to claim your points:

1.     iBEACONS! - If you have downloaded the HSR app, and your Bluetooth is turned on, you will automatically be awarded your points when you enter the facility, through our new HSR iBeacon sensors! 

2.     HSR APP - If your Bluetooth is not enabled, just visit the events tab of the HSR iOS or Android app once you have entered the event and click "Check-In" (Click HERE for details on downloading the app)

3.     HSR KIOSK - Swipe your student ID on the HSR kiosk at the student entrance to the event
