Admission as a transfer student is based on consistent academic performance at all current and previously attended institutions. A cumulative grade point average is calculated from all courses completed and attempted with all grades or course designations.
Students who complete the following at least one full semester (16 weeks) before their desired term of enrollment will be considered more competitive in the admissions process:
- An equivalent to MSU WRA 101/WRA 110-150/WRA 195H
- An equivalent to MSU MTH 103, 110, 116, 124, 132 or higher
- 28 or more credits deemed transferable to MSU
- 3.0 GPA or higher, with consistent grade performance
Students with 42 or more completed credits must select a major; the majors of no preference, pre-medical, pre-nursing, pre-optometry and pre-veterinary cannot be chosen.
Many limited enrollment majors have additional admission requirements.
