Denied Admission Policy

Students who do not meet the requirements for admission to a graduate program may appeal for special consideration when past academic performance may not be indicative of the ability to do graduate-level work or when there may be errors in supporting documentation. Guidelines for the appeals procedure are available at the Graduate School.

The Graduate School may admit students when special circumstances exist and where students can demonstrate their ability to matriculate at MSU's Graduate School.

Once students have been denied admission to a graduate program, they will not be reconsidered for the same program for one semester.
