Michigan State University’s living-learning residential programs allow students who share similar academic interests, or an interest in a multi-cultural living experience, to live together in designated residence halls or on particular residence hall floors. Many of the living-learning options allow students to attend classes with the same group of peers in their residence hall, and some of the programs have faculty and academic adviser offices within the same residence hall.
To be considered for membership in a degree-granting residential program, a major preference on the application for admission is required, and space fills on a first-come, first-served basis. Check the individual program for details. The Honors College is by invitation only based on academic standing in high school. Students do not need to make a designation on the application for admission to be considered for the Honors College.
Residential communities are open to all interested students who meet the program guidelines; however, some communities require an application form and/or supporting materials. Check the individual program for details. The Academic Scholars program is by invitation only based on academic standing in high school. Students do not need to submit additional forms to be considered.
