The application deadline for undergraduate applications is normally 30 days before the beginning of the semester; however, the deadline is subject to earlier closing without notice, especially for fall semester. In recent years, the number of qualified freshman applicants has exceeded available spaces. Those persons who qualify for admission after having completed the eleventh grade fill the freshman class initially. For fullest consideration, apply as early as possible during senior year of high school.
If a person submits an application for admission to an undergraduate program at Michigan State University for a specific semester, and is accepted but does not enroll for that semester, the application may be reactivated within a period of one year subject to the deadline for filing applications for admission and a new application review will be conducted. If, after one year, the person still has not enrolled at Michigan State, a new application for admission must be submitted.
