Greetings Transfer Students!

Congratulations on your acceptance as well as your decision to join our College of the Arts community. Your next step to becoming a successful student is to schedule an appointment with an advisor. Meeting with an advisor will help you clarify your goals, enroll in the right courses, and make smart decisions that will help you graduate on time.

Before your scheduled appointment, please be sure to do the following:

  1. Review the curriculum and graduation plan that corresponds with your intended major. 
  2. Gather and bring to the meeting your prior college transcripts and descriptions of courses you hope will transfer. 
  3. Hone in on the MSU courses you need to take. 
  4. Know your CWID, PIN, NetID, and how to register for courses via NEST (see Course Registration Information and video tutorial for looking up classes.) 
  5. Music students - be sure you have completed the online music theory test.
