Provisional Admission

MSU offers provisional admission to applicants who meet the academic and financial requirements but whose English language proficiency does not meet the levels required for regular admission. All applicants whose first language is not English MUST provide proof of English language proficiency. Students who may be admitted provisionally are still required to submit English language proficiency exam scores to the Office of Admissions.

Provisional status will continue until the minimum language proficiency (regular admission proficiency) is attained; however, the language proficiency must be reached within three consecutive semesters (summer may be excluded) of enrollment in appropriate English as a Second Language (ESL) courses or demonstrate consistent progress in English language as determined by the Director of the English Language Center in order to remain enrolled. Provisionally admitted students must take the MSU English Language Test (MSUELT) upon arrival at MSU to assess their need for additional language instruction at the English Language Center.
