Thank you for your interest in Michigan State University.
The college search process takes a significant amount of time and resources. Planning now – early in your high school years – will help you determine your career goals and the type of college experience that will best suit your needs, interests, and expectations.
Be sure to join the mailing list before you leave and schedule a campus visit soon. If you want to learn more about MSU from current students, visit the Be a Spartan site featuring videos, student journals, and more!
Take a look at MSU’s suggested college preparatory curriculum to ensure your academic choices fulfill the requirements specified by the Office of Admissions and Scholarship. You and your parents should also review MSU’s College Planning Guide PDF*, which gives a year-by-year checklist for high school students preparing to go to college, including tips on finances, comparing schools, and planning campus visits.
Remember to have your SAT or ACT test scores sent directly to Michigan State from the testing agency and to submit your application for admission early in your senior year. The ACT code is 2032; the SAT code is 1465. You are required to submit the writing portion of the test.
If you’re looking for a challenge, MSU’s Spartan Youth Programs provide a range of opportunities for high school students, including several offering college credit.
Thank you for your interest in Michigan State University, and we look forward to working with you through your college search process.
