Transfer dates and deadlines

Please note: Michigan State University uses rolling admission, but the number of qualified applicants has exceeded available space in recent years. Depending on several factors — including space available in the entering class — it may not be possible to submit an application for certain semesters.

Admission decisions for undergraduate applicants are typically made 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.

Transfer students are encouraged to apply at least six months prior to their desired semester of enrollment.
