All students will use the new Student Information System (SIS) to search and register for courses. For reference, here is a link to the guide for using the new system.
Make an Advising Appointment
To discuss your course plan, check with your department on who your academic advisor is, how to make an appointment, and how to create an academic grad plan then submit it for approval.
The financial aid page provides details about applying for aid as a new, current or returning graduate student. You'll also find information about the available sources of assistance as well as sample budgets and aid packages.
Check out this page for current, past and future academic calendars. You'll also find a list of important dates and deadlines that will help prepare you for the school year.
The MSU Libraries are excellent resources for online and distance learning. There are many collections and service available online. Read more about the options by clicking on the "Libraries" link above.
Professional Licensure and Certification
Federal regulations require MSU to publicly disclose, for each educational program designed to meet the educational requirements for a specific professional license or certification required for employment in an occupation (or advertised as meeting those requirements), information about whether program completion would meet those requirements in a state. These public disclosure requirements apply to all programs, regardless of their modality (i.e., on-ground, online, and hybrid programs). MSU discloses the information related to the educational requirements for professional licensure and certification in the table at https://reg.msu.edu/Read/PDF/Professional Licensure and Certification - Public Disclosures - Final.pdf
All current and prospective students are encouraged to contact the applicable professional licensure/certification boards in their respective states for additional information regarding professional licensure/certification requirements, including, without limitation, information regarding any non-educational requirements (such as work experience, background clearance, or examination by outside entities, such as bar examinations).
The information in the table should not be construed as guaranteeing that any particular professional licensure/certification authority will approve a student’s application; nor should the information in the table be read to imply that other requirements for professional licensure/certification do not exist or that other requirements for professional licensure/certification have been determined to have been met by MSU’s program/course, or that any necessary approvals for clinical or other experiential learning placements are secured by virtue of a student’s enrollment at MSU.
State professional licensure/certification requirements are subject to change at any time.
