What is the Kick Off program?

The Kick Off program allows students to take an MSU course remotely over the summer, gradually transitioning into their collegiate academic career. Available courses satisfy many of the general education (MSU Core) credits students take during their time at MSU, and are specifically chosen and designed for new students. Learn more about this year's offerings below!
