Transfer your credits

Admitted students with college or university credit will be able to access their official transfer credit evaluation approximately six weeks after their required Advanced Enrollment Deposit is received. This evaluation, available on the student's StuInfo page, shows how courses completed at other institutions transfer to Michigan State University. Transfer students are encouraged to use the Transfer MSU searchable transfer credit equivalency system to identify courses that may transfer to MSU.

Students transferring from two-year institutions may transfer a maximum of 60 semester credits for use toward a bachelor's degree. Course work assigned a grade of 2.0 or higher may be recognized in transfer. Any courses taken that resulted in a grade below 2.0 are not eligible for transfer credit. Michigan State University does not cooperate with any third party summer programs (e.g., LION International, AUIA, etc.) for transfer credit.

In order to receive transfer credit, official transcripts should be mailed to:
Office of Admissions
Hannah Administration Building
426 Auditorium Road, Room 250
East Lansing, MI 48824-2604

AP, IB, CLEP, DSST, and A Level Examinations

Students can receive credit through Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program, College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), Dantes Subject Standardized Tests (DSST), and International A Level examinations. Strong scores may allow for a course waiver or course credit. All scores must be sent to the Office of Admissions directly from the testing agency.
