Dates and deadlines
Michigan State University uses rolling admission and continues to accept undergraduate applications as long as space is still available. However, the number of qualified applicants has exceeded available space in recent years, so students should apply early to ensure highest consideration. Most students enter in the fall semester. Admission to other semesters may be limited, if available at all.
Admission decisions for undergraduate applicants are typically made within eight to 12 weeks after all application materials are received. A complete application includes the application for admission as well as official transcripts and standardized test scores. An initial admissions decision may be a "withhold" decision, in which a student is asked to provide more information to the Office of Admissions.
