MSU welcomes applications from students in early/middle college programs. Early middle/college students should apply as first year students if they plan to attend MSU immediately after receiving a high school diploma. This includes students who receive a high school diploma at the same time as an associate degree. Early/middle college students are reviewed the same as other first year applicants and are eligible for first year scholarships. Tuition and financial aid can be affected by the number of credits transferred. Early/middle college students who have completed college course work must submit an official college transcript for credit consideration and an official transcript from the high school.
