After you apply
We’ll take it from here.
You can track your application by logging in to your account. You will need your applicant ID (the number assigned to you to access your online application) and your password. If you do not have your applicant ID or password, you can search for them here.
Please allow seven to 10 business days for the receipt of transcripts and test scores to be recorded in MSU's information system.
Admission decisions are typically made eight to 12 weeks after all application materials are received.
Edit email or address
If you need to edit your email or address, simply login to your account and click on the "Edit address" or "Edit email" button in the control panel.
If you have already applied to Michigan State University and would like to defer your application to a future semester, log in to your account and click on the “Change semester” button in the control panel.
Semester changes are not available between July 1 and October 1. Students may only change to a semester up to one year past the original desired semester of enrollment. Any semester changes beyond one year will require a new application. Deferments to future semesters are not automatic. You may be required to supply additional information, and your admission to the new semester will be reviewed again with the applicant pool for that semester.
If you have already applied to Michigan State University and would like to change your major, log in to your account and click on the “Change major” button in the control panel. If you change your major prior to an admission decision, your application processing time will start over. Students are encouraged to wait until after being admitted to change their major.
If you decide you are not going to attend MSU, please cancel your admission to make space for another student. Log in to your account and click on the “Cancel application” button in the control panel. Students who have been offered admission and who have already submitted the Advanced Enrollment Deposit (AED) can request a refund before May 1 preceding fall semester.
