Send official transcripts

Admitted transfer students are required to send current, official transcripts for each institution attended to Michigan State University. Self‐reported academic records will be verified using official transcript for accuracy. If circumstances develop that make previously provided information inaccurate, misleading or incomplete, the consequence of the discrepancy may lead to the revocation of an offer of admission and/or dismissal from the university. Students should also notify the Office of Admissions if they are currently enrolled in college courses or anticipate taking a college course prior to their first semester of enrollment at MSU.

Students will be able to access their official transfer credit evaluation approximately six weeks after their required Advanced Enrollment Deposit (AED) is received. This evaluation, available on the student’s StuInfo page, shows how courses completed at other institutions transfer to Michigan State. 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 a two-year institution 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.

In order to receive transfer credit, official transcripts should be mailed to:
