 NEW MSU Transfer Credit Policy – Transfer Credit Allowed AFTER 56 Credits (Junior Standing)

“Students may transfer a maximum of 60 credits from two-year institutions. Those credits may be earned and transferred into MSU at any time in the student’s degree. No more than 10 of the last 30 total credits toward a degree may be transferred without approval by the Associate Provost for Undergraduate Education. Only grades of 2.0 and above are eligible for transfer credit.”

  • This new transfer policy allows students to repeat classes at a community college (even after 56 credits)! Remember, the grade does not transfer, just the credit. The repeat transfer credit will remove the original grade.

NEW MSU Course Repeat Policy

“Starting summer 2022, a new course repeat policy will take effect that will apply to all prior semesters’ courses. This will allow undergraduate students to repeat any class up to twice (for a total of three attempts), regardless of the grade they earned in their previous attempt, and with a 20-credit limit on repeat credits.”
