Admission as a transfer student is based on consistent academic performance at all current and previously attended institutions. All courses attempted are calculated using grades/course designations in determining a cumulative grade point average.
International students interested in transfer admission should refer to the international transfer applicants page.
Students are encouraged to complete the following criteria at least one full semester (16 weeks) prior to their desired term of enrollment. For example, applicants interested in fall (September) admission, are encouraged to have the criteria met by the end of their spring (January) semester.
When applying, students must select a desired major(s). If you select a restricted major on your application, you will be asked to provide up to two additional major choices. One of your choices must be a non-restricted major. If you do not meet the requirements for your first-choice restricted major, you will be reviewed for the other major selections in the order you specify. Exploratory majors and the majors of pre-nursing and pre-veterinary cannot be chosen if a student has 42 or more transferrable credits.
You can use transfer.msu.edu to see which credits will transfer to Michigan State.
