I got accepted! The only issue is that I got accepted for the spring of 2015 and deferred for the fall of 2014. Would it be better for me to go to a community college until the spring semester and transfer or to wait until the spring to start college?
Congratulations and welcome to the Spartan family!
You are not required to take courses at another school in the fall; however, it is recommended. Students taking classes at another institution have the opportunity to keep progressing towards the completion of their academic program by transferring credits. Whether or not you enroll for courses at another institution this fall, you MUST log in to your online student portal between September 1 and October 1, 2014, and inform our office of your Fall 2014 schedule or plans. You must also:
- Perform well in any Fall 2014 classes (or forfeit your spring admission offer).
- Input your course grades via your online student portal by December 26, 2014.
- Have a final, official transcript sent to the Office of Admissions by December 30, 2014.
If you plan to take courses at another institution in the fall, it is recommended you enroll in classes that transfer to MSU as satisfactory equivalents for our Integrative Studies requirements. A list of Integrative Studies classes is available online. A database, showing transferable credits by individual institutions can be found in the Transfer MSU system.Degree Navigator is an advising tool that enables you to compare your academic record with degree requirements for your major of choice.
