Submit deposit

All 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.

Before submitting your deposit, you must first activate your MSU Net ID and email account. Once you have done this, you can log in to your account to submit your deposit.


Transfer students should submit their deposit within four weeks from the date of admission.

Note: The deposit for transfer students is nonrefundable.
