Transferring Credit

Admitted students with college or university credit will be able to access their official transfer credit evaluation approximately six weeks after their required Advanced Enrollment Deposit is received. This evaluation, available on the student's StuInfo page, shows how courses completed at other institutions transfer to Michigan State University. Transfer students are encouraged to use the Transfer MSU searchable transfer credit equivalency system to identify courses that may transfer to MSU.

Students transferring from two-year institutions may transfer a maximum of 60 semester credits for use toward a bachelor's degree. Course work assigned a grade of 2.0 or higher may be recognized in transfer. Any courses taken that resulted in a grade below 2.0 are not eligible for transfer credit. For more information, visit
