How do I apply?

  • Before you complete your application, please learn about PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS

  • We welcome and review applications throughout the year, however, applications should be received by January 15 to be guaranteed consideration for Fall Semester admission (later applications are considered as space permits).

  • Earlier applications are recommended if applicants want to apply for financial support from MSU. The application deadline for University scholarships is typically before the end of December. 

  • Admission decisions are made by the graduate department/program. However, your admission to the University is not official until it has been approved by the Office of Admissions. The Office of Admissions will send out official offer letters. 

  • Admission decisions are made after a departmental review of your academic records, test scores (where required), recommendations, qualifications and experience, and proposed program of study.

  • Since graduate education involves personalized instruction, consideration is also given to the availability of space in the chosen academic program. Michigan State University is committed to the principles of equal opportunity, non-discrimination, and affirmative action. The University complies with all federal and state laws and regulations relating to these principles.
