Add/Drop Process  

After receiving a registration PIN from their advisors, students can generally manage their enrollment through MyInfo and CatCourse Scheduler (for more information, please visit the Registration Information website). Sometimes students need instructor approval to add a class. Instructors can authorize an override of a pre-requisite, course cap or time conflict. They may also authorize a student to add their course between the 6th and 10th day of a typical semester. To drop a class from the 11th through the 59th day of the typical semester, students need to consult an advisor. Details on these processes can be found below.  

Getting Started in Liberal Studies

The Liberal Studies degree values a broad and interdisciplinary approach to higher education. It also offers flexibility in course curriculum. Advising and course planning, therefore, are critical to student success. Liberal Studies advisors help students decide on a program of study and develop a preliminary curriculum plan. If you are interested in finding out more about the Liberal Studies degree at MSU, please visit navMSU at  to schedule an appointment.
