Big Ten Academic Alliance Traveling Scholar Program

Doctoral students at Michigan State University are eligible to apply for admission to the “Traveling Scholar Program,” sponsored by the Big Ten Universities Academic Alliance. 

The Traveling Scholar program enables selected doctoral students to take advantage of special facilities available on the campus of one of the participating universities but not available on the home campus. Such facilities include special course offerings, research opportunities, laboratories, and library collections. Students participating in this program, known as "Traveling Scholars,'' are limited to two semesters or three quarters on another campus.
A Traveling Scholar from Michigan State University will be registered on the Michigan State University campus, and fees will be collected and kept by this institution. No additional fees will be charged. Credit for work taken under this program will be accepted at this University. 

A doctoral student interested in this program should contact the Graduate School for instructions and formal processing.
