Your home institution must be an exchange partner with Michigan State University through a formal two-way exchange agreement. You must be nominated by your home university to apply. MSU must accept your application. If you attend Michigan State as an exchange student, you will remain enrolled with your home institution. You will pay your home institution fees as established in the exchange agreement. The academic program you undertake may be credited towards your degree as per the formal agreement between your institution and Michigan State University.
