Congratulations! You applied. You were accepted. Now it’s time to confirm your place in the transfer class.
Please thoroughly review all of the steps and complete them as soon as possible. These steps can also be viewed in your account after you have been admitted.
Here’s your checklist to become an official Spartan!
All admitted transfer students who plan to attend Michigan State University should reserve their place in the incoming class as soon as they have decided to enroll at MSU, but no later than four weeks after the date of admission. Complete the steps below to reserve your place at MSU.
All transfer students who plan to attend Michigan State University must submit the $250 Advanced Enrollment Deposit (AED). Submitting your deposit holds your place in the incoming class and allows you to register for a required New Student Orientation (NSO) date. Once you have successfully submitted your deposit online, you will be able to select an orientation date. Please note that orientation dates fill up on a first-come, first-served basis.
Transfer students should submit their deposit within four weeks from the date of admission. Note: The deposit for transfer students is nonrefundable.
Before attending Michigan State University, all incoming transfer students must submit all final, official transcripts to MSU.
All transfer students, with a few exceptions, are required to live in on-campus housing for the first four semesters they are enrolled at MSU.
After you have submitted your deposit which includes your $40 housing application fee, you will be able to log in to your My Housing account where you will acknowledge that your housing contract will be available to sign in March. If you are under 18, a parent or guardian will need to sign the contract as well. You should submit your deposit and sign your housing contract as soon as you decide to enroll at MSU, but no later than May 1.
In the spring you will receive more housing information, including requirements and deadlines, from MSU Live On. Be sure to regularly check your MSU email address for updates. Visit the MSU LiveOn website for more information about on-campus housing and to explore halls and neighborhoods.
