Application Requirements

Complete the MSU application as a Post-Bacc student and select the option of "I have already earned a Bachelor’s degree, and I am apply to pursue an additional Bachelor’s degree.” 

Applicants must submit a transcript from EVERY University or College they have attended, even if it was to only take 1 course. The Office of Undergradaute Admissions cannot process your application until all your transcripts have been received. Therefore, it is important to start the application process early to allow for sufficient time to complete orientation and academic advising. 

*Applications are accepted using rolling admissions throughout the year. However, applicants are encouraged to apply early to ensure time for advising and course registration. The Certificate Program is intended to start at the beginning of the summer session (May).
